Hear what the parents and players have to say...

Inside Running Academy was definitely the best rugby experience my son and our rugby club ever had!
Prev Singh
I have had 3 sons train with Inside Running Academy in 2019 and 2020. All the boys improved in all skills & fitness. Additionally forming international friendships from athletes from across the globe. Outside of learning new rugby skills, they improve nutrition, goals & can provide realistic opportunities here in NZ & abroad!! Highly recommend for male and female rugby athletes wanting an advantage to their exisiting level of skills and fitness.
Charles Palmer
Our son loved his training at Inside Running Academy and was going to happily go there for a 3rd time this April, unfortunately due to Covid, it’s pushed to a later date! If your son wants to go to back to Inside Running Academy it says it all!
