Off the Mark & the Barefoot Concept Store present the first FASTER FROM THE FIRST STEP Workshop

We are excited to announce a new and innovative way of educating our runners on the much talked about ‘Running Technique’ issue.

Off the Mark, together with The Barefoot Concept Store are proud to present the first workshop of it’s kind. We will be conducting 2 live analyses right in front of your very eyes. It’s highly likely that we will be presented with unique technical issues related to each individual. This will give us a chance to look at some of the less-talked-about technical issues relating to runners.

Not only will two lucky athletes benefit from their free live assessment, but there will be some awesome give-aways too.

* Witness live running technique assessments
* Learn how to prevent overuse injuries
* Discover what free-speed is
* Become your own running guru

Spot prizes!

Contact Sean to book your place.
