If you're serious about reaching your marathon goal, you have come to the right place.
'Run Well' is our name but also a verb. Run Well is the concept that applies to all your running; whether slow & steady right up to speed work on the track, tempo, and racing. The concept of 'running well' refers to your running form. Running technique, strength and efficiency must be applied at all times to enable you to build stronger movement patterns through the neurologic development of muscular function and co-ordination. In combination with proven training methods, good running form plus strength & conditioning results in faster running.
This will allow you to run better, run stronger & run faster!
Running is natural, running is primitive, and running is a skill that can be taught, learned, and practised. The continual and regular practise of good running form and good training methods is what makes you a stronger, better and hence more efficient runner. The result is running further and faster, with reduced injury risk, and better performance!
This has lead to the development of;
the "run well stack: and the 6 week running technique clinic
The lessons learned by our coaches over many years and miles on the track & race course, can be delivered to you in the form of our running technique clinic that is designed to re-train & teach you to run with greater technique & efficiency, whilst developing strength and reducing your risk of injury.

About Rohan Armstrong
Rohan is passionate about running. Believing we are all 'Born to Run', Rohan likes to help everyday people to get running, run better and achieve their running goals.
He is the Principal Osteopath and Clinic Director at City Osteopathy - West in Melbourne, and at RUN OSTEO. With over 25 years in clinical practice, Rohan has been working with athletes of all types and levels, taking him to all parts of the world.
He is an Accredited Athletics/Running Coach and has developed a special interest in running & runners. From the treatment & management of running injury, injury prevention, coaching running technique & efficiency, exercise science, marathon training and programming.
Naturally, a keen runner himself that began on the sportsfield, AFL footballer, a coached 400m sprinter, finally transforming these skills into distance running and the marathon.
It was the lessons learned on the track combined with his clinical experience working with injured runners understanding the mechanisms of injury and a thirst for greater knowledge & understanding that laid the path to becoming a more committed, passionate runner, and marathon training coach.
Most importantly, he learned that the application of quality consistent training employing effective training principles & efficient technique will produce improved performance & better results. Thus the 6 week running technique clinic was born, and Run Well stack evolved that has seen him coach over 150 runners to become better, stronger and faster.
Putting these principles and skills into practise over many years Rohan has been able to continually reduce his PB's over all distances over the past 10 years ( despite his age!!), and cut nearly 9 minutes off his marathon time in his second attempt to break the 3 hour goal,
Rohan takes the regular running group training session every Friday morning at the Tan (meet at 6.00am at gate B, Anderson Street hill) & Running Technique Coaching Clinics around Melbourne.
