Performance Running

Would you like to learn what it takes to train like an elite middle distance runner?

PRC is a 3-night residential middle distance running camp for children and teenagers aged 10-16 years.

The programme offers county and county aspiring athletes the opportunity to train for 3 days with UKA qualified coaches. The course covers technique, speed agility and quickness (SAQ), sports nutrition, race preparation and injury prevention.

We welcome triathletes onto the course, where we offer running-based transition sessions with a focus on the switch from the quadricep muscle use (bike) to gluteal activation on the run.

The coaches

Our programme is led by UKA level 3 coach John Skevington

With almost two decades as a coach, many years of which have been at national level, John is perfectly positioned to help particpants improve running technique and reduce the incidence of injuries.

The programme

The programme is broken down into ability and age group related sessions.

We use video analysis to look at the technique of all participants. Younger age groups will have a particular focus on technique; while more advanced runners will also focus on strength conditioning and race tactics.

Nutrition is a strong feature of the programme with guest speakers hosting workshops to talk about the importance this plays in training and competing.

Specialist workshops

Pre-hab. How to prevent injuries

The Success Iceberg. What it takes to become a successful runner.

Running shoes. What’s best. A talk from a running shoe specialist. (And possibly a chance to win a new pair of shoes!)

Technology. Help or hindrance?


We focus on pre and post event nutrition and a food guide to sit alongside training plans. We also have a guest speaker that comes into speak with children about the importance of the right food and drink.


Evenings are fun with opportunities to take part in sportshall games and we also have film night and talents shows!
