Whitfield has teamed up with Waterford Viking Marathon to host a WVM ‘Six weeks to Go’ seminar in Whitfield on Thursday, May 12th at 6pm.
Runners of all levels are invited along for lots of relevant tips and advice on the lead up to the Full, Half, Quarter and Relay Marathon.
Discussions on the evening will include Whitfield’s own expert Physiotherapists Shane Walsh, Orla Dunphy and Derek O Neill discussing how you can minimise the risk of injury in the final weeks, preparing for the day, on the day and post-race recovery.
Fionn McSwiney, WIT’s postgraduate researcher in the area of sports nutrition, will advise about general nutrition and dietary requirements for runners as well as all important hydration. Also from WIT, Dr Ciara Losty will discuss the psychological factors affecting your performance and preparing your mind for the day of the run.
There will be plenty of opportunity for questions with the experts and an opportunity to chat to some pacers and race organisers ahead of the day.
This is a free event and all are welcome to attend with a chance to win a pair of high end runners from Alfie Hale Sports on the night.
