Purpose

Strengthens the runner’s legs for increased power when driving forward.

Setup

  • Find a set of steps, such as in a stadium.

How it Works

  1. Runner sprints up the stairs.
  2. Runner stops when he or she can no longer maintain their quickness or they reach the top.

Coaching Tips

  • Runner should start out running one step at a time. With experience, they can run two or more steps at a time and really emphasize the driving action.
