Altra Minimalist Running Workshop: London


Tuesday 2nd April 2019

6:30pm - 8:00pm

Run and Become, 4a Eccleston Street, London, SW1W 9LN


Minimalist Running Workshop

Special Guest, Charlie Harpur: Ultra athlete and trail runner. Recently crowned British 100km champion while representing England at the Anglo Celtic Plate in the Sri Chinmoy 100km race in Perth, Scotland.

The Altra Team will lead a Minimalist Running workshop joined by Chi Running Instructor Balavan Thomas. The Altra range of running shoes is one of the fastest growing running brands in the UK. In the USA, they have become a “go to” shoe amongst road and trail runners. Their revolutionary, zero-drop technology and wide ‘foot frame’ forefoot is increasingly loved by runners on all surfaces. Come and try them for yourself.

At this event the Altra team will provide both road and trail try-on models for an easy paced 5km run from the store. (Everyone goes at their own pace.)

Before we head out for a run, Charlie Harpur will share the joys of his running, the training, the races and also his experience with Altra shoes: why he trains with them and how they have helped his performance.

This will be followed by a short presentation by Balavan Thomas, certified Chi Running Instructor, on the benefits of Minimalist Running and Chi Running. This teaches a safe and efficient, natural running technique to reduce injury and improve personal performance. Balavan will guide us through a few exercises in-store and then we will head out to St James’s Park.

Alex Wilson, Altra’s technical rep, will be on hand with Run and Become staff to offer any advice on the shoes.
