An Evening with Martin Jones – World Mountain Running Champion / GB International (5k / 10k / XC)
Thursday 23rd May 2013
*** UPDATE : Venue & Time ***
Jolly Crofters Pub – meet from 7.45pm for an 8.15pm prompt start
Horwich RMI Harriers are fully committed to provide the best coaching advice to ALL members in order to improve an individuals knowledge and hopefully performance. Throughout 2013 we are trying to develop opportunities to meet up and conduct a series of workshops / seminars that allow some in depth discussion / presentations on key subject areas.
The aim is to really understand and distinguish facts from the fiction and for the member to gain some practical steps to implement – much of the training literature found in magazines are really out of touch with current thinking so tapping into more advanced coaching / training methods could be highly beneficial to many members.
To compliment this we are hoping to tap into some “very special athletes” and none more so than our very own club superstar Martin Jones who ran at GB International level and won a number of world mountain running championships throughout the 1990s!
This is a rare insight into how an ex world class distance runner set his stall out and I’m sure all of us are keen to hear what choices Martin made that propelled him from club standard to world champion. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and Martin has even offered some “coaching” and support in your quest to become a better athlete.
Yours in sport, Martyn Bell
