Participants in The Running Clinic's flagship course 1.0



We take pride in delivering the most up-to-date evidence-based courses

Our flagship 1.0 course has been delivered in five languages, hundreds of times, on all five continents. Using the most recent science, it questions several unjustified and widespread practices.

Our expert clinicians will present you a compelling visual synthesis of the most recent and relevant running science as useful clinical tools for therapists. At the end of this two-day journey, you will possess and know how to apply new, must-have skills when working with runners: mechanical stress quantification (load management), gait analysis/retraining, shoe prescription, and more.


After completing this course, you will automatically be listed as a Certified professional on our online registry, which will promote your services to anyone searching on our database. When members of the ever-growing running community in your region will look for a specialist to treat them, your name will come up on top!

  • Aren Savangsengouthay, Physiotherapist, Motion Science Physiotherapy, Winnipeg (MB), Canada


    I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the entire team at The Running Clinic again, absolutely loved the course. I am very excited to start working and hopefully seeing LOTS of runners. Please pass on my appreciation to everyone and I hope to see you again in the future either at a class, clinic, maybe on a run who knows.

  • Sara Miller, Physiotherapist, Range of Motion Physiotherapy, Fredericton (NB), Canada


    Thank you again for an amazing course! It has changed the way I’ve approached some of my clinic patients as well as my own running. I feel more confident in my own abilities to make the right changes for myself and also my patients. I personally very much liked the 4 evenings, 4 hours approach. It allowed application of concepts learned between sessions that a weekend course wouldn’t have allowed. Also, as a McMaster grad, I very much appreciate the presentation of the evidence and the mindset of cutting edge, pushing boundaries of our current knowledge. I have some old school colleagues who don’t agree with that mindset as much so it’s been a pleasure to learn from you and all the guest speakers. Thank you again for everything! I look forward to taking the next levels.

  • Matthew Berube, Athletic therapist, Dynamic Therapy & Rehabilitation Centre, Sudbury (ON), Canada


    Thanks again for running the course last weekend. I can honestly say it’s the best course I’ve taken to date and it’s shifted my perspective on running and high impact related injuries!
