Injury Prevention Clinic
The Narragansett Summer Running Festival is more than just a weekend of racing, but a gathering of the running community. We want to welcome novice and elite runners alike to come together and celebrate our sport!
Injuries are part of our sport. The culture of the running community is very much centered on our desire to ever-improve, to get faster, to build more endurance, to beat an old PR or to traverse a new trail. Whatever your goal is, an injury is an unwelcome hurdle within your training plan.
The folks at Elliott Physical Therapy want to help you continue to build towards a sustainable running lifestyle. They're offering up a FREE injury prevention workshop to athletes registered for this year's Narragansett Summer Running Festival.
Where: Elliott Physical Therapy, 566 Washington
Street, #1, South Easton, MA 02375
When: June 10th, 2021 at 6:30 PM
The crew at Elliott will be giving a talk on integrating various injury prevention strategies into a training program for a road race. They'll be touching on points such as implementing a proper warm-up, preforming corrective exercises to minimize risk of common running injuries, and the importance of adequate sleep, nutrition and hydration during a training cycle.
In an effort to help welcome new/novice runners into our 10k and Half Marathon, we've enlisted the help of the pros over at The Run Formula. They have created two distinct training plans for runners looking to take on a race at the Narragansett Summer Running Festival for the first time!
If you're considering a race with us, please understand that every runner on that startling line has been new to the sport at one time or another. Make the leap, sign-up, and join us as we Conquer the Summer! After all, every runner must toe the starting line in order to get to the finish line. See you in July!
