LimbPower have teamed up with UK Athletics and England Athletics to help them to find talented track athletes of the future, with an eye to continuing to build on the Paralympic success forged in London. As a part of the Talent Intro days that UK Athletics are running across the country, LimbPower are offering ‘Learn to Run’ clinics for amputees who have been inspired by the like of Johnnie Peacock and want to give it a go for themselves.
The free clinics will offer practical and theory workshops for coaches and leg amputees including information on how to start running, sporting prosthetics, funding and coaching. The clinics are open to all amputees aged 11+, who want to learn to run, whether it’s just for fun, to get fit or with dreams of the Paralympics in mind.
The “Learn to Run’ clinics will be held at four of the Talent Intro days, the first being in Sheffield on 28th October, followed by Manchester on 13th January, Loughborough on 10th February and Chelmsford on 9th March.
So if you think you’ve got what it takes to make it all the way to Rio in 2016, or if you’d just like to learn a little more about running techniques and see how it feels for yourself then contact Kiera@limbpower.com for further details of how to register.
