“So You Want To Do An Ultra…”: Tips & Tricks to Tackling Longer Races
April 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
As marathons have gained in popularity, so has the hankering among endurance athletes to complete longer, more extreme races. You’ve finished 26.2 a handful of times… so what’s next?
Join a panel of local experts – including Ramon Bermo, Stephen England and Mary Arnold – on Wednesday, April 19, for a conversation on the essential skills for ultra and trail running. (This crew has collectively run more than 110 ultras from 50k to 100 miles so they know their stuff!)
Their discussion will focus on best practices for training for an ultramarathon (essentially, races longer than 26.2 miles): transitioning to longer distances, selecting the right race for your ability and making the most of training experiences in and around the city to set yourself up for race-day success. Additionally, we’ll have a local rep from Salomon on hand to talk about essential gear for ultra and trail running.
All are welcome to attend! We hope this discussion will be beneficial both for runners who’ve already signed up for an ultra and for those who are considering it.
RSVP so we know you’re coming – we’ll also have snacks & beverages! Note: door code to access the building is 2711.
