Arthur Lydiard - the pioneering New Zealand running coach who influenced running training theory more than any coach. Successfully coaching Olympic champions and influencing the coaches of others. His results and that of others he helped along the way are testament to the theories and principles he fine tuned by using himself as the ultimate subject.
Lydiard just didn't talk the talk, he walked the walk. His practical experience over many years enriched his knowledge and understanding to become a coach who could provide the best for his athletes so that they could perform when it counted.
This will be a unique opportunity for coaches and athletes to further their knowledge and skills, learning direct from two individuals who were entrusted with continuing the legacy by the man himself - Arthur Lydiard.

50 minutes away from central London (by train), Folkestone offers an array of accommodation that is within easy reach of the venue.
