Bob Larsen is one of the finest coaches in our sport, ever. It is not only his understanding of the basic action of distance running, but it is also that he is a master of the art of coaching. Coach Larsen is one of the most beloved coaches that one could ever meet. From his days coaching high school, to the Jamul Toads, to Grossmont Junior College to UCLA, to his days coaching at Mammoth and his nearly twenty years wtih Meb Keflezighi, Bob Larsen is a role model for many coaches.
The clinic that Bob Larsen put on August 15, 2015 at the HOKA ONE ONE Endurance Cross roads was one of the best clinics that this writer has ever witnessed.
Here is the a nearly complete audio version of the clinic where Coach Larsen spoke with a packed room of coaches on the care and development of distance runners.
Listen to this closely, and pass it around to your staff. And remember, if you can get to the 2016 HOKA ONE ONE Endurance Crossroads Clinic, you should do it!
