Want to Crush Your Summer of Running Events?


Learn how with our training sessions, online coaching, nutrition programmes, guidance and support.

Don't let the time slip away.
You can achieve greatness this Summer, if you get started now...

There's nothing worse than wasting all of your time and money on a running event which doesn't go as well as you'd hoped.   

If you've ever had to walk the final section of your race then you know you're not getting value for money. 


Your legs just seem to run out of gas and no matter how strong you are in the mind there's nothing you can do to turn the race around.


You've registered for the event, full with hope of what it could be like but on the day feel like the experience isn't even worth the entry fee, let along the hours you've put into training. 


If you've shown up really under prepared then you may even have acquired a new niggle or a pain which started half way through the race and simply got worse.


You've been slowing down, while everyone around seems to be speeding up. It can start to feel like you don't even deserve to be racing with all of these people.


But it doesn't need to be this way...

Unlimited Coach Guidance


Have you ever just wanted to ask one person what you should do about a running related issue? 


The internet has loads of information about running but getting an answer specific to your situation is practically impossible due to the vast array of moving parts in your life. 


Conor responds to most first time questions with a question of his own:

Reason 1. Getting Background Information

Whether you need guidance on a particular run you're struggling to fit in, a niggling left knee or which events to enter the correct answer will depend on what came before. Conor will take the time to understand your goals, strengths, weaknesses and dig up what lead up to any situation which has left you uncertain about next steps. 

Reason 2:

Unlike a blog post or running forum, quality coaching happens best when you learn how to solve similar problems by yourself in the future.

 

If a coach gives you an answer without working through the situation with you then they deprive you of the opportunity to learn how to work it out yourself. 


Conor will help you figure out the answers by working through the facts so you can become an independently knowledgeable running. 

What do we mean by "Unlimited"? 


Anytime you find yourself with a question simply message, email or set up a call to discuss your situation in depth.

 

Conor will typically reply within a couple of hours on weekdays and in between family and coaching commitments on the weekend.


When you're getting answers from one sourse which knows your exact situation you can bet it'll be more effective than any blog post, book or forum.

Eat to Run

Most people who join our programme do so to improve their health so it makes sense that we incorporate our 3 week nutrition programme.  

Watch this short clip to learn what's involved...

Your Truly Personalised Running Programme

Generic programmes fail to prescribe speeds which reflect your ability and contain distances which neglect the multiple events you've entered.


Watch and learn how your Programme can be designed with speeds based on your ability and distances which peak you for multiple events.

Our first job will be to find where the hidden potential lies when compared to previous race build ups:

  • A lack of programme could have meant you missed important run distances in peaking for your race.
  • A pacing strategy based on what you wanted, not what you'd proved was achievable in training could have lead to a lethal positive split.  
  • Maybe it was an upset stomach, knee or hip pain which prevented you running at the speeds you've been able to achieve in training.
  • If you're good over distance but getting passed in the final Kilometre then we can teach you how to become more of a sprinter with a personalised training approach. 

There are so many things which can go wrong in training and on race day but with your own running coach, a personalised programme and other squad members cheering you on you can have a Summer of personal bests. 

Here’s what some squad members said last year...

Expert Runner Transformation Course

As a Summer Squad Member you'll be able to help us shape our latest online running course. Gain lifetime access to all lessons and suggest new topics to be included.

1

Module 1: Getting Setup

Learn the way around your very own running programme, get the tech set up so you know what speed you should be running and how to know whether you're actually keeping to the speeds. Learn to plan your own race calendar and ideal training week to ensure the best Summer of your running life.

2

Module 2: Preparing to Run

Address niggles before they become an injury, fuel yourself depending on the run you're about to face, teach your body to adapt for the benefits you need to conquer each event. This module will prepare you to prepare your body for faster and longer runs than it's ever been capable of. 

3

Module 3: The Run Itself

Mental strategies for coping with stress, technical cues to hard wire and knowing when to change the race plan are all vital if you're going to succeed in every run. The biggest failure of most intermediate runners is removing the options they have available when adversity hits part way through a run. 

4

Module 4: Learning and Recovering

Each run offers us an opportunity to fine tune our next one. To make vital decisions about our next events and maximise progress. Learn to recover effectively and your body can cope with far more physical stress than you ever thought possible. 

5

Module 5: Racing

There's nothing worse than training well and racing below expectations. Fact is that just one bad decision can turn our race upside down and not only waste your entry fee but months of preparation. 

Bonus

Say NO to Pain and Injury

Your biggest risk to crushing this Summer of events is undoubtedly an injury. Ask any one on the start line of a 10k, Half or Full Marathon and they'll tell you they've had to manage some kind of pain which they were unable to shake. Many will take weeks to recover from the injury which resulted when they push through the pain to finish in a time they knew could have been better.

About The Coach,
Conor Graham

Conor teaches intermediate level runners how to maximise the benefits from every run. He's helped hundreds of runners complete first time distances and achieve a steady series of personal best results. 

Over 15 years as a fitness proffesional and running coach have enabled him to grow as a coach, investing time and money in the latest methods utilised by runners. 

Clientele vary from those who run regular Half and Full Marathons to many who wouldn't run to catch a bus.

Here’s what people are saying about Coach Conor

Stop Wasting Money on Races, Invest it in Yourself

Each race entry costs you £18-£40 so it's important that you actually get the experience you hoped for when you entered the event.


This is unfortunately rarely the case with many runners finding themselves struggling to finish in a time they're proud, picking up an injury during the event or not event reaching the start line due to injury or a complete lack of training. Some people pay £400+ for a course of private sessions with a health professional only to find they've lost all of their running fitness.  Others wait months for an appointment with the NHS only to be told they should stop running as "it's bad for your joints"...


Why put your body and your family finances through this process when you could invest just a fraction of the costs to prepare correctly? There is so much value to be gained with a process proven to reduce injury rates. Just learning to run injury free could save you hundreds of pounds. 


But what about the actual experience of training, uninterrupted with small and regular personal best training runs which get you in the habit of winning. You'll win every race against previous best times if you can stay injury free and stick to your programme.

Back from 2 years out of Running to Crush the Cheltenham Half Marathon

“I wanted to get back into running after a break of 2 years. I set myself the Cheltenham half marathon in Oct as my target. The club got me going again and they are so welcoming and inclusive. Conor gives great advice. I thoroughly recommend the club and am constantly telling friends about it.”

In case you were wondering...

I am incredibly proud of the progress we've made in preparing and educating runners. Thanks to this squad and others like it, there are less people who destroy their love of running due to a bad race or training experience. 


There is still so much to achieve though. Thousands of runners sign up to events on a whim only to fail their own expectations thanks to a lack of knowledge and support. 

Please don't let this be you. Whether you join this squad or another programme like it, you want to make running enjoyable, rewarding and sustainable. 


Please take the action which prepares you for a life long love of running.
