Sprint Race Training
Online training session
Fri 9 Apr 2021
Most of us have had a go at urban races as well as their 'super-charged' cousin, the urban sprint. In this session we'll look at some of the techniques we should consider, focussing on leg planning and route choice.
The session will be delivered via Zoom. There will be an opportunity to run virtually on world class urban terrain using Running Wild. There will also be a themed Kahoot quiz.
This activity is a prelude to the Urban Sprint Double Header Model Event in Marden on Saturday 10th April.
Type of event: Local, Coaching, Social, Sprint, Training
Results will be available soon.
