'Did my longest run ever without stopping yesterday ;just over 12miles in a steady 85mins. Had a 'moment' for about 10-15mins at 7 miles ish of pure EASY running, like it was a dream and my legs were just not part of me, Thanks again for helping me overcome an injury that meant I could never run for more than 30mins, not too long ago.' Sam, ex sub 2min 800m runner
"In summation, the chi-running weekend was just a great experience. The ethos of the weekend and Nick’s patient and passionate teaching created the right psychological climate for change. No matter what your standard, perception of ability, goals and motives, I’m confident that if you signed up for a similar weekend, or one-day workshop you too would receive a great return for your investment." Dr Elaine Duncan Glasgow University

What is Chi Running?
ChiRunning combines the inner focus and the ideas and principles behind T'ai Chi with the power and energy of running to create a revolutionary running form and philosophy that takes the pounding, pain, and potential damage out of the sport of running. ChiRunning increases mental clarity and focus, enhances the joy of running, and turns running into a safe and effective lifelong program for health, fitness, and well-being.
What is the focus of Chi Running?
