UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Certification Description

The UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Certification is developed by renowned ultrarunning coach and author, Jason Koop. Moreover, the UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Certification is the only ultrarunning coach certification on the market. Until now, the most common way to coach ultrarunners was to just extend the training volume and other training variables from that of a marathon. This is not correct. The information contained in this certification is very specific to ultrarunning and if you plan on working with ultrarunners or want to improve your own ultrarunning performance, this certification is for you!

The goal of this certification is to educate students on how the body functions and how to apply this knowledge to working with ultrarunners.

About This Demo Course

The Ultrarunning Coach Certification Demo consists of five modules, with three topics per module. The goal of this demo is to give you an interactive and in-depth look at some of the exact content of the UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Certification. The demo is on the same learning platform as the actual certification, so the look and feel of the content is exactly what you will experience in the full certification. It features a 10 Question Final Quiz similar to the full certification questions.

You have 14 Day Access to the Demo course and there is no further obligation!
