Oliver took us through a typical pre-session warm up routine with expertly demonstrated drills for our runners to incorporate into their own training, before leading a short track workout to get the blood well and truly pumping!

We had owner of the best mullet in the running scene, Lloyd Kempson, bossing the mic and ensuring a top drawer atmosphere for all involved, and, the latest VOLT colour-way of the Nike Vaporfly Next% 2 for everyone to test on the track.

Before the night was done, we decided to task 8 of our runners to take on Oliver Dustin’s unbelievable U23 record 800m time of 1:43.82, in a 100m relay format! Despite coming close, our runners fell short by just over 5 seconds, further amplifying quite how rapid Oliver is!

To conclude a thoroughly enjoyable evening of running related festivities, we hauled some benches onto the track and got settled in school assembly style for a super insightful Q&A with Oliver Dustin.

The word ‘inspiration’ gets thrown around without much thought these days but this was a truly insightful and inspirational look into the life of a world class runner as Oliver revealed his top tips for balancing Uni and training, the importance of his parents support, his favourite sessions and resilience during tough times through injury.

A massive thanks to everyone who made it down for the event, we hope with the world slowly returning to normality, this is just the start!
