Strength and MObility training

A combination of modern lifestyles and poor training has left many athletes susceptible to injury and sub-optimal performances. Spending hours in front of a computer screen, sitting in a car commuting to and from work, rushing off for an hour hard run before finally sitting back down to watch television in the evening is hardly the stimulus your body needs to maintain good function and movement quality.

It is therefore hardly surprising that the majority of runners spend as much time injured as they do actually running. In fact as runners, we have almost come to believe that this is the norm. At The Run Project, we look to address this issue by making people aware of their lifestyle choices, improving the structure of their training and assisting them in regaining better movement quality and control through strength and mobility work.

As with anything training related, there is no one size fits all model but there are sound principles that we look to incorporate in all our strength programs. We also have access to incredibly knowledgeable strength coaches as well as chiropractors and physiotherapists and try work closely with them in areas where we ourselves have less knowledge or expertise. Injuries and chronic pain do not have to be synonymous with running and we are firmly of the belief that we can help you in this journey of achieving pain free, happy and sustainable running.

2019 has been such an incredible year for the Run Project!
We started the year off with a number of our athletes preparing for 2 Oceans & Comrades. We have always prided ourselves in trying to think differently about coaching & there is no better example of that than how coach Meg & Bernie (Who got his first Silver) prepared for Comrades this year. Both deserve so much credit for trusting each other & the process, once again highlighting that there is no one way to prepare for a race! The year rolled on with a number of our athletes taking on Old Fisherman’s Challenge which is an old classic trail race in Cape Town. It’s a race that can often set the tone for the year & we saw some wonderful performances as well as some spectacular blow-ups! The South African winter is packed with races and we had athletes racing everything from TMC, Oxpecker & Whale of Trail just to name a few.There were so many awesome results & stories that came out of these races, the one that really stood out for us was John Faure who had a really tough day at Whale Trail last year & who came back with a vengeance this year absolutely crushing it & smiling the entire way. Over this time coach Meg went from strength to strength, once again finishing in the top 10 in the GTS & making the final in Nepal where she finished an incredible 3rd, leaving her 5th in the overall rankings. 
The last 3 big races of the year in SA are otter, Skyrun & UTCT. All 3 races saw some incredible achievements as well as some really big lessons. Shale Biggs & Craig Carter-Brown ran incredible races at Skyrun. Finally, we had almost 40 athletes running the various UTCT races this year. It was a special day with a personal highlight being Kerry B getting the 100km bogey off her back! We want to give a special thank you to all our Run Project athletes. To those that show up day in & day out & work to improve themselves. For those of you that have battled injury & illness & worked tirelessly on improving your movement quality, eating better, sleeping more, meditating, the list goes on. You guys are the true champions & the reason for our business. Thank you! 
2020 is shaping up to be even bigger & better! Bring it on!
