|The Columbus Regional Hospital Wellness Program is offering a mini marathon (13.1 miles) training program that meets for 15 Saturdays beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 19, in the CRH Kroot Auditorium. |
The two races targeted are the Louisville Derby Festival held on April 27 and the Indy 500 Festival held on May 4. The Indy mini fills up fast so enter early at www.500festival.com.
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 will provide a great training base for anyone considering the inaugural Mill Race Marathon (half or full) option to be held in Columbus, Indiana in September 2013.
