I’ve been invited to be one of the guest speakers for the launch of RUNNR Academy tonight. This is an impressive series of lectures and group runs initiated by Runnr to promote running. Hope to see you later!
Press Release from Runnr…
An upcoming weekly series of lectures on running will fire up the interests of both beginners and advanced runners as they will get to know innovative health and training tips, strength and conditioning techniques, and other important strategies that will take them further into their sport.
The RUNNR Academy, sponsored by the innovative and highly defined sports store RUNNR in partnership with Run BGC (Bonifacio Global City) and Newton Running, will be launched on March 23, 2011 at 7:00 pm.
The evening lectures will be conducted by well-known runners and coaches like Jaymie Pizarro, Jim Saret, Andy Leuterio, Lit Ornubia, Edsel Vengco, Edward Kho, and other experts.
Some of the topics they will discuss will include the application of the correct method of running; the importance of having a strong physical framework; techniques to acclimatize, avoid dehydration and run with the sun; determining the ideal weight, right nutrition, heart rate, and other health concerns.
Every Wednesday 7pm, the lecture is free for all. The lectures will be held subsequently every Wednesday until May 25, 2011, and will be followed by Group Runs at 8:00 p.m. (except for DAY 1, March 23).
Participants will be divided into two groups of Basic and Advanced runners, each limited to 30 individuals and to be led by two coaches along a predetermined route inside the Bonifacio Global City. Group stretching and other drills will ensure that the participants will get the most benefits out of each session.
The RUNNR Academy running clinics is on a first come, first served basis. There will be no pre-registration. Interested runners must register on the spot at the clinic.
