Hosting Evolution Running provides your group with:
¨ Revenue: Evolution Running clinics can generate several thousand dollars for your budget.
¨ Valuable Member Benefit: Members of any running organization will appreciate bringing Evolution Running to town.
¨ Increased Membership: Evolution Running will bring prospective new members in contact with you, prospects which you don't currently have access to.
¨ Greater Public Awareness: Promote your organization on the Evolution Running website and our marketing efforts also market you.
As professional coaches, we value our prospective customers and territories and we understand that other professional coaches do as well. We frequently provide clinics and lectured for coaches who are competitors. In these instances, we teach about running technique and promote the coaching service of the host coach, not our own coaching service. If a coach hosts an Evolution Running clinic, that coach has the exclusive for promoting coaching at that event. We are very careful not to step on toes in this area. We never become competitors of our hosts.
An Evolution Running clinic requires a classroom with comfortable seating for the participants, a wall or screen, and electricity for our PowerPoint presentation. We also need a flat stretch of road, trail, parking lot or sidewalk, track, or gym floor suitable for practicing running the techniques. Optimally, an indoor or covered running space will be available in case of rain.
The host organization will carry the primary responsibility for local marketing, but Evolution Running will list your event on our website event schedule, mention it on our message board, and contact athletes on our clinic notification list and athletes who have purchased books or videos in your region.
Every clinic will include a booklet of materials about Evolution Running techniques and participants will have email access to certified Evolution Running coaches for brief follow up instruction. We offer several different types of clinic.
1-Day Clinic ($125-149 per participant) -- Our basic Evolution Running clinic lasts three to four hours based on the number of participants. We begin with a short video analysis of each participant's stride. After a quick introduction to the value of correct running technique, a series of short lectures followed by hands-on instruction with supervised running and drills. The running generally consists of 20-30 yard repetitions at an easy pace with full recovery and is in no way a workout. Our clinics are appropriate for out of condition or beginning runners as well as elites.
2-Day Clinic includes video analysis ($279 per participant) -- Our 2-day clinics feature the same presentations as the 1-day clinic, plus a much greater degree of hands-on learning. Extensive video analysis will be included throughout the clinic, with analysis of each aspect of technique, rather than only before and after. More repetitions of supervised drilling and running will provide a jump start for motor learning of the new skills and more teaching methods will be employed.
Well marketed Evolution Running events generally attract between 30 and 45 participants.
Evolution Running offers two payment methods for providing a clinic at your site. Our flat rate charges are listed below. We also offer a profit sharing program which reduces your risk and provides further incentive for Evolution Running to market your event more aggressively. This program offers a 50/50 profit share after expenses, but we do require a minimum number of pre-registered participants, based on travel requirements. Contact Evolution Running for details.
1-Day Clinic with Video Analysis - $1200 plus expenses
2 1-Day Clinics on the same day = $1600
2-Day Clinic or Lecture / Clinic Combination - $1600 plus expenses
This program teams up a local host with Evolution Running as business partners. We do require a minimum number of pre-registered participants to make sure adequate revenue is generated, but profit is split evenly after expenses. With a successful marketing program, this can generate significant revenue without risk to the host.
