News Half-Marathon Workshop Set for February


Considering training for the 2018 Corvallis Half-Marathon, but don’t know where to begin? Or maybe you have questions about your training plan or are looking for a group to keep you accountable.

Join the athletic medicine team at Samaritan Athletic Medicine, known as The SAM, on Thursday, Feb. 1, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., for a free running workshop highlighting the most important practices to embrace and avoid when training for a half-marathon.

Topics will include:

  • Running form and best practices
  • Home-based strength and mobility training to reduce the likelihood of training injuries
  • Pre-race nutrition guidelines
  • Training resources and opportunities

The free training workshop will kick off weekly running groups to help you train to reach maximum performance just in time for the Corvallis Half-Marathon in April. Run alongside The SAM’s elite physical therapists, get free running tips and ask questions about your training and ability.

Healthy snacks and beverages will be provided. Pre-registration is required as space is limited.

Register today or call The SAM at 541-768-7700 for more information.
