Athletics Training is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.


After reaching a skill of 70 or more in Athletics, trainers Honditar in Chorrol or Hauls-Ropes-Faster in Anvil will point out Rusia Bradus as a master trainer who may be willing to train the Hero further.


After speaking with Honditar or Hauls-Ropes-Faster, go to Rusia in Anvil and ask what she will require for training. She will explain that she will only agree to training after the Hero has located 30 locations (main cities not included). After the requirements are met, she will agree to training.

She will also accept locations from the Shivering Isles.
