Sam Barnes, holder of the 1-mile record for the Serpentine running club, and sub 2:30 marathon runner, will lead weekly Run & Reps classes to help Uncommon members increase their speed and strength in preparation for Runcommon, or any other running event they might have in 2020!

Ultimate Recovery Workshop
Tuesday 4 February @ Uncommon Liverpool Street

Taking care of yourself is the best thing you can do for you and for your family and friends. Discover the 4 key areas for ultimate recovery to allow you to unlock greater energy, productivity, and maintain better mental and physical health. We will be covering: sleep hygiene, optimal training, nutrition and mindfulness.

Runners Strength & Mobility
Wednesday 12 February @ Uncommon Liverpool Street

It sounds odd, but you need to do a lot more than just run to prepare yourself for a run! Not enough people prepare their body to run. Proper mobility allows joints and muscles to work optimally, and necessary strength exercises allow for greater speed & stamina. The combination of the two make for injury-free training and quicker race times.

The London Marathon in 10 Pictures with Chris Finill
Wednesday 26 February @ Uncommon Liverpool Street

Chris Finill is one of the 10 remaining ‘Everpresents’ – a special group of runners who have run every single London Marathon since it began in 1981. On top of this, he also holds the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive sub-3-hour marathons – an incredible 33 and has also run across America. There are few people more qualified or experienced to talk about the history of the event, the things to expect and prepare for in the build-up to the big day and inspire you to your best London Marathon finish time, whether it’s your first or you’re a seasoned vet!
