We are delighted to open bookings for this year’s Jog Leader Conference, which will be held at Aberdeen Sports Village on Saturday 7 October.
Our guest speaker will be Colin Thomas. Colin is a UK Clinical Lead in Physiology, a Sports Scientist, UKA Running Coach and strength coach who works with athletes from beginner to elite, all over the world. He is also a tutor at the Institute of Sport.
He has regular visits to Kenya, with some of the world’s top athletes and coaches, training at altitude in their quest to reach the top. He has also worked in hospitals, gyms, clinics and fitness centres all over the UK with the general public, amateur and professional sports people, all with the similar aim of improving performance.
As a keen running enthusiast himself he is always looking to trial new ways of pushing the limits of human performance. He is a regular speaker at conferences in the UK and abroad, and his written articles are regularly published in running magazines. His first book, Running on the Red Dust, is 5 star rated on Amazon.
Colin will present two sessions – the first will be a talk on Running: Changing the World, bringing us stories from his time spent in Kenya; he will then hold a practical session, advising us on injury prevention.
There’ll also be sessions and updates from:
- The jogscotland team
- The Changing Lives programme
- Athletics Trust Scotland
The full day costs just £10, including lunch and is open to all jogscotland Jog Leaders.
