NEW for 2018, plan to stay longer and enjoy the HGR Speaker Series.

In our ongoing effort to support women of all levels of fitness as they challenge themselves by participating in these run, this year we are presenting 2 panel discussions to get you ALL the information you need to comfortably achieve your fitness goals now and in the future. The format will be 15 minute presentation followed by Q&A .

These panels are designed to capitalize on some defining female qualities a willingness to trust each other, dive deep and share information.

Beginning at 4pm the first panel MOVIN ON UP: GROWING FROM A 5K TO LONGER DISTANCES will be women who actively coach and lead training groups at various distances, with proven strategies and advice on how to increase your distance, as well as preform more efficiently and effectively in your chosen distance

At 4:45pm join Lee Sacket from Brooks Shoes to discuss SHOES , THE PERFECT FIT.

At 5:00 it’s time for WHAT THE YUCK about how to address the maybe not so glamorous issues that can come up as a runner and are uniquely female. This will be a fun, frank and lively presentation by a physical therapist, the owner of Healthy HooHoo, and a naturopath, again followed by a Q & A. This is where those questions you never thought you’d ask anyone can be answered surrounded by other women who have probably had similar questions or have experience to share.
