Thank you for your interest in attending the
Arthur Lydiard Course, to be held at Shrewsbury School.

We have been conducting the Lydiard™ Coaching Certificate Clinic (I & II) in its present two-and-a-quarter days format since the spring of 2013.  The course starts out on Friday evening showing the awesome historical  development of Lydiard™ training from its modest neighborhood development to becoming the most widely used performance training system in the world for endurance sports.

On the following days we cover the theory and application of Lydiard™ Training so that every participant can write a Lydiard™ schedule and know that every workout has its purpose and place to optimize the training and racing of any athlete.

There are practical sessions on Saturday and Sunday of the quintessential Lydiard™ hill training and the sharpening session of 50/50’s. With lively discussion and case studies we nearly always run out of time so, we have introduced a new schedule with added hours to make Lydiard™ I&II a 20-hour course.

There is accommodation available at the School, with a Price List enclosed. Please let us know your accommodation requirements or whether you need collecting from the Train Station. Let us know if you would like to book the evening meal on Friday and Saturday nights, as we will need to inform the Caterers. However, there are plenty of fine restaurants and pubs, within walking distance of the School. The School can cater for any special dietary requirements. Please indicate on your reply.  Lunch and dinners are 3 courses. On arrival go straight to Churchill Hall before 12 midday, and you will be directed from there. Free Wifi; you will be given the Password on the day.

Payments for the Course are paid directly to the Lydiard Foundation website. Payments for the accommodation are booked via myself, Colin Livingstone.
