Running Reborn Coaching-Movement Workshop for Runners
Sunday 14th May 10am-5pm
Workhop address: Saint Piran Café, Old Conns Works, Bissoe, Nr Truro. TR4 8QZ
Thank you for booking onto the Workshop led by running specialist Shane Benzie.
Your payment to secure a place on the day has been received with thanks.
The workshop offers an evidence-based approach to helping you refine your running technique and
therefore improve your running economy, performance and reduce your injury risk. By the end of the
day you will have a greater awareness of how to effectively use your body to deal with the forces
coming up at you from the ground which will guide you in your training and keep you running for
longer with fewer injuries.
All running and video analysis will be done outside in so we can analyse how you run on a natural
terrain, which treadmills can't offer.
On arrival we will be asking you to complete consent forms and health questionnaires before
participating in the running workshop. Please do let us know if there is any relevant medical or injury
related history we need to be aware of prior to the start of the course.

Who is Shane?
Shane Benzie – Founder of Running Reborn
"My passion and fascination for our dynamic movement were the key motivators for me to create
Running Reborn. Coaching, analysing and researching our running movement on six continents and
in a number of environments, many of them extreme has lead me to the conclusion that our
movement is largely influenced by our perception of the movement, if we change our perception then
we change our movement. When we move to our full potential we do so with elasticity, synergy,
fluidity and a sense of connectivity which is driven by our amazing proprioceptive system, I believe
this perception has been replaced with one that promotes one of being mechanical, if indeed there is
any thought at all.
My movement workshops are based on analysis and coaching of natural running form in a way that
allows the runner to take ownership of their movement and create a running intelligence that treats
running as a skill that can be practiced and developed.
My work is based on the belief that our running form can only be analysed and coached outside in the
natural environment and away from the treadmill which completely changes our running dynamics.
To this end I use groundbreaking wearable sensor technology and 360 degree video analysis of the
whole body; we run outside so we should be analysed and coached outside. I coach a running
technique that focuses on efficiency and reducing the effects of impact on the body to runners of all
levels from international to complete beginners and those returning from injury."
