The Science of Running Better and Injury Free + Community Run

February 27, 2019 @ 5:30 pm 8:30 pm

Come hear elite runner & Altra founder Golden Harper share his story and participate in a clinic on debunking running myths and understanding the science that will help you become a better, injury free runner! This is a hands on workshop for all runners and is not an Altra shoe clinic.

5:30 p.m.: Golden introduction

6 p.m.: Golden will lead a short clinic focusing on how to run faster and injury free. This will transition into our community run. Refreshments will be provided after the run!

7-8:30 p.m.: Golden will lead a discussion on myths vs science regarding running surfaces, foot pain, cushioning, pronation and more—and how these topics may or may not be related to injury and how to apply the knowledge so you are still running strong at age 80 and beyond!

Golden will also raffle off a pair of shoes and some swag during the event.

Some background on Golden: He began running marathons at a young age. When he was 12 years old, he ran the St. George Marathon in 2:45:34, setting a world best. He went on to win two Cross Country State Championships and record top finishes in many mountain races, including winning the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase. In addition, Golden grew up working in his family’s running store. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science.
