The Art of Running is a great way to learn how to improve your form, avoid injury, and find your flow. It is based on the Alexander Technique and looks at how our everyday postural habits can impact your running and...you don't have to be a marathon runner or triathlete to benefit from an Art of Running workshop. They are designed for new runners, recreational runners, and competitive runners alike. This is a workshop, not a workout! We will adapt to each participant’s level.
Date and Time: Sunday, July 29, 9am–12pm
Cost: Early Bird Rate $100 until July 15 ($140 after July 15)
Location: Montrose Beach—meet near the restrooms just west of the beach
