Stuart Hardie

In 2009 Stuart decided to run from John o'Groats to Lands End ... a distance of 1044 miles.

Early training was not straightforward resulting in regular calf injuries.

He undertook some ChiRunning instruction and 18 months later at the age of 65 he achieved his objective running 39 marathons in 40 days. A phenomenal achievement.

He so surprised the health professionals in his support team that they insisted he study to become a running coach and in 2012 he qualified as a Certified ChiRunning and ChiWalking Instructor.

Stuart has continued to develop his coaching and now offers instruction based on an amalgam of techniques.

By concentrating on his running form and combining it with his yoga Stuart describes his running as a holistic practice resulting in more efficient running and less injury.
