Barefoot Running Clinic

10/11/12/13 OCTOBER 2013

Have you ever fancied trying barefoot running? Or are you already a convert and would like to improve your technique? Then this is the break for you.

The Barefoot Performance Academy active break is an extended weekend from Friday to Sunday where you will learn more about your body than ever before.


Rollo Mahon is an injury and athletic performance specialist who teaches the true potential of body, mind and belief through the skill of barefoot running. We’ve teamed up with Rollo to offer our guests a bespoke weekend where, through unique coaching techniques, you will learn that you have all the hidden strength you need to enjoy barefoot running.

Rollo’s movement therapy is all based around running gait. This weekend is a  simple but thorough introduction to movement skill, taking you from rehabilitation management, through stability training and movement therapy to running techniques, whilst showing you how it can easily be integrated into a fun weekend.

Common running injuries will be quite easily solved, as will efficiency in movement. Many runners have fallen out of touch with movement skill so you will be amazed with the results.  Movement therapy carries immediately into other sports and improves overall skill in all activities.

The hotel has three great restaurants and you can even include a surf lesson with the Extreme Academy during the weekend.
