FREE Injury Prevention for Runners Workshop

FREE Injury Prevention for Runners Workshop this Saturday, 8/27

We are delighted to have Gavin Cribb, PT, DPT, from Fast Track Physical Therapy Group give a FREE Injury Prevention Workshop/Demo for Runners. 

Date: Saturday, 8/27
Time: 6:30am (before kickoff for the Marathon and SLR group runs)
Place: North Meade Park (meeting place for SLR and Marathon Training Group across from the Marine Corps Memorial- Iwo Jima)
Duration: 20 minutes + Q&A after

You can't make it to the race if you are injured! Please don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to learn injury prevention techniques so that you can spend your time running rather than rehabbing an injury that could have been prevented!

*This workshop is open to ALL current DCRRC members. Even if you are not training with the SLR or Marathon group please stop by for the workshop and do join us for some running too.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity! Gavin is an amazing Physical Therapist and has worked on a few of our board members, keeping them on the road and race ready!
