Event description

Description

In response to popular demand, Guide Runners NI welcome you to our next FREE practical training session. This module is open to ALL, you do not need a formal coaching qualification, though we do ask that you genuinely wish to guide run - more and more visually impaired people are taking up running and guides are very much needed.

This module involves running in pairs, partly as a guide, partly in simulation specs (replicating as closely as possible, various eye conditions), and partly in a blindfold. The course includes flat tarmac surfaces, very gentle undulations, as well as mixed surfaces - we want to replicate as many different conditions as we can! Please dress to run (NOT at speed, this is not a race!), and for the weather on the day.

If you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible - we are oversubscribed and strictly limited as to how many people we can coach at any one time. If you let us know, we can offer the place to another person. Having to withdraw is not an issue, you are welcome to join us on another date, at any venue.

If the session is full, you will have the option to register on a 'waitlist'; if anyone drops out, the next person on the list will be given the option to register. If we have a waitlist remianing, we will do our best to organise another session and invite you first.

Please follow our Facebook page to keep up to date, offer guide running services or find a visually impaired runner to run with: https://www.facebook.com/guiderunnersNI/

This session will take place after the parkrun; you are welcome to join in parkrun and then join us at the same location for the guide runner training.
