Free running workshop, registration required

I just received an email from Rachel Kagno, Public Affairs at Newton-Wellesley Hospital to share this notification. So as part of our "public service effort", here goes!
Do you want to start running? Are you getting ready for your first race? Do you
want to improve your performance?

On Saturday, September 8 from 10:00am to 12:00pm, sports medicine experts from
Newton-Wellesley Hospital will host Running Strong: Train Smart - Run Well, a
free program for beginner to intermediate runners. The event will be held in the
Hospital's Shipley Auditorium, 2nd floor, 2014 Washington Street, Newton.

This free workshop is designed to provide beginner runners with the tools to
develop a program for a sound running foundation. Intermediate runners will have
the opportunity to develop smoother and more efficient running mechanics.
Participants will take an active part in the workshop in a learn-by-doing format
- so come dressed to run.

Newton-Wellesley Hospital's Running Strong Series is offered periodically
throughout the year to help athletes avoid injury and maximize performance.
Newton-Wellesley Hospital, which is located at the Boston Marathon's 17 mile
mark, is an official medical provider of the Boston Marathon and partner with
the Boston Athletic Association, providing pre and post-marathon services to
athletes. Newton-Wellesley sponsors the Athletes Village Medical Tents, which
house medical professionals to provide treatment for runners and spectators.

Registration is required. To reserve your seat for this free workshop, register
online at, or call
The Runner's Line at 617-243-6383.
