|Columbus Regional Health's Wellness Program will offer its "Pace for the Race" half marathon training program starting January 18. The annual training program provides education and training for participants to run a 13.1 miles half marathon. The two races targeted are the Louisville Derby Festival on April 19 and the Indy 500 Festival held on May 3. |
Beginning and intermediate runners, as well as walkers, will be introduced to various training methods and will go on a weekly training walk/run. Classes will include presentations on nutrition, injury recognition and prevention, and mental preparation. These spring half-marathons provide a great training base for anyone considering the Mill Race Marathon and Half-Marathon in the fall.
