About this Event

This interactive workshop will be ideal for people who have been participating in adventure racing with a while and wish to enhance their performance and improve their results. The workshop will better your understanding and performance of the two disciplines; biking and trail running, and at the same time, allow you the opportunity to ask the expert some questions and share some laughs about past experiences on the roads and mountains!

ABOUT THE VENUE: Our clinic, the Life Fit Studio is in upper Ballygarvan and has plenty of space for groups like this. There are some lovely cycle routes on our doorstep making this a perfect choice for such a workshop. We’re proud of our cosy coffee corner too. Look forward to regular breaks to chill out on the couch and meet fellow adventurers over coffee and cake.
