Summit Hosts Healthy Running Class
Register to join us in August for a comprehensive running continuing education course covering everything runners need to know about optimizing overall health while remaining injury-free.
Runners are dedicated to their sport, and to optimizing their performance while remaining injury-free. At Summit, we are excited to host Healthy Running, a continuing education course for and about runners, to provide you with the latest information about training, performance, injury prevention, and advances in the treatment of running injuries—presented by experts in the field of running medicine.
On August 1st and 2nd, we invite you to join us for Healthy Running at our Woodlake offices in Woodbury. This inspired running and health education course is ideal for:
- sports medicine physicians
- physical therapists
- athletic trainers
- physician assistants
- running coaches
Healthy Running educators will include Dr. Ken Mierke, exercise physiologist and author of Triathlete’s Guide to Running, and Kerri Kramer Webb MSPT, DPT, biomechanics analysis specialist and founder of the Fast Track Sports Medicine & Performance Center. The comprehensive program will cover advanced running form, strength training, range of motion, aerobic development, motor skill development, injury assessment and treatment, and running shoe prescription. The evidence-based content will be presented with numerous case scenarios and hands-on analysis to apply concepts learned.
Are you uncertain about the controversies over running form, training methods, nutrition, footwear, drill and warm-up, stretching, and strength training? Healthy Running will tackle these issues, dissecting the research and helping you to clearly understand all sides of these issues. We will deepen your understanding while keeping it all simple so you can apply what you learn to yourself, patients, clients, athletes, customers, and youth.
