The masterclass series is part of the Strides to Perform Run Certification our new program for 2021

” It was another great run specific live virtual conference and I’m already getting lots of mileage out of the material, both personally and with patients. I really appreciate Chloë’s insight, incredible knowledge, teaching skills and great energy .”
Victoria Orlowski, runner & coach, PhD physical therapy, California USA

We focus on runners from track, road, trail-mountain, Ultra and triathlon
All modules are live via Zoom to facilitate the practical learning process and for greater interaction
Times of modules are scheduled to facilitate different time zones to accommodate people living in Europe to North America
Times are schedule in CET, Central European Time
Each Masterclass has two different dates to choose from, spring & fall
