Why we developed this course

Unbeknownst to most folks, the term "Master runner" applies to any runner who is 35 and over. Considering that endurance participation among Master athletes has steadily risen in recent decades, it is important for practitioners and coaches to develop a refined understanding of the specific physiological and biomechanical changes that have been documented in this group. Master runners also exhibit a unique injury pattern and profile. Taking the time to fully ascertain their past medical history is therefore essential to properly assess and address any residual impairments. Gaining a lens into a Master runner's overall ecosystem is also critical to developing a comprehensive training plan as they are likely to face a different set of considerations, responsibilities, and challenges relative to their younger counterparts. By taking the time to capture this information while appreciating key factors related to facilitating trust and effective communication you will be well-positioned to cultivate a great working relationship with Master runners that will set them up for consistent, healthy, and strong training.
