Wendover Ultra Workshop

13 Mar 2020


Welcome to our inaugural Ultrarunning Workshop. The day is designed to deliver you the information, knowledge and skills to get more enjoyment out of your running, to maximise your potential and to help you avoid many of the common pitfalls that ultrarunning can lead to. 

Over the course of the day we will focus on the topics that are central to enjoyment, improvement and sustainability in running ultras.

We will cater for all experience levels, whether you are looking to run your first 50km or have years of racing under your belt.

The Workshop takes place in Wendover at the Witchell Pavilion on Friday 13th March 2020. The day runs from 0930 to 1600.

The sessions will be run by James Elson, Race Director at Centurion Running, a qualified UK Athletics coach with a decade of experience working with athletes of all abilities. James will be joined by Drew Sheffield and Nici Griffin who form the core of the Staff Team at Centurion Running. Between us we have run every type of ultra on every terrain, as well as directing ultras at Centurion Running since 2011.

The cost includes talks on all of the key topics outlined further down the page, a 90 minute led running session where we will discuss technique, core skills and running to effort over time vs heart rate vs pace. Hot drinks and lunch are also included in the price.
