ChiRunning® Hills & Trails

Take the fear out of running hills and learn how to gain an advantage in your racing time, while staying injury-free.

What to Expect

In this two-hour workshop, we’ll build on the skills you learned in the ChiRunning® Essentials course to increase your ability to conserve energy on the uphills, reduce impact on the downhills, and enjoy the views from the top – pain-free.

Just like running on flat terrain, the focus is on techniques to promote energy efficiency and injury prevention.

Thanks for the great workshop. I have been an endurance athlete for 38 years – running, swimming, biking – and never has any one day resulted in so much improvement. And running feels so much more natural and fun. I can’t wait to practice and bring the new me to races.”
