Good Form Walking/Running Clinic
Tuesday, July 29 | 7 pm

Run faster! Run easier! Run injury free! As a company dedicated to helping more people make running an ongoing part of their lives, New Balance recognized that a significant cause of running-related injuries was that when it comes to form, most runners have been left to their own devices, resulting in gaits that may resist forward momentum and create unnecessary strain.

New Balance’s Good Form Running is a simple and effective running form clinic that will teach runners in 4 easy steps how to use their bodies, their legs, and their foot-strike in the most efficient manner to create Good Running Form and reduce injuries and strain. By reducing the strain that leads to injury, these four steps work together to keep you on the road, helping you to run longer, faster, and more comfortably than ever before.
 
Please wear running clothes and shoes as we will be doing many drills and techniques to showcase the 4 steps of Good Form Running / Walking.

Presented by New Balance. Held in AVAC’s Conference Room. FREE for members and non-members.

Please RSVP with Becky at bsmothermon@avac.us by July 22.
