Marathon prep session scheduled

Derek Larner’s MDR relay teams will be among the marathon’s fastest.

Derek Larner, local distance running coach and Race Caribbean volunteer, will host an “Inspiring Performance” session to help runners prepare for the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon in December.

Topics will include:

  • Training – what you’re doing now and is it right?
  • Fitness vs. economy and efficiency
  • Technique – understanding how the body is meant to run
  • Having a plan – how to create a running/walking plan that works for you.

The free event runs from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, at the  Gallean Ballroom at The Westin resort.

A representative from Bliss will also be on hand to talk briefly about the benefits of yoga for runners and will draw a giveaway for a free yoga class. Prize draws will also be held for free marathon registrations, and healthy refreshments will be served.

Runners are invited to come out and network with fellow runners, exchange personal success tips and learn from the experts.
