With the marathon four months away, it is time to start preparing for the distance ahead. This weekend, we have TWO opportunities to get your head in the game as you start training for 26.2:
- Saturday, June 11 from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon Race Director Darris Blackford will be answering all your training questions during a Facebook Live video stream event. If you have a question for Darris, please post it on Facebook and Twitter this week and he will address it then.
- Sunday, June 12 from 3 pm to 5 pm: Join us in-person for a “26.2 Miles in 2016 Training Kick-Off” that will feature marathon training information including exclusive tips on the 2016 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon course, a complimentary yoga class specific to runners (the first 45 people to register here will get into this session, bring your own yoga mat!) and free food from FUSIAN and Smoothie King. The event will take place at Modo Yoga Columbus, 1042 Dublin Rd, Grandview Heights. Check out our Facebook Event page for more information and to register. For specific questions about the yoga class, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that RunFest 2016 is still happening on July 9 from 1 pm to 4 pm at Capital University Field House. We’re looking forward to these events to get you pumped up to complete 26.2 or 13.1 on Sunday, Oct. 16!
