Runner's Day Workshop & Run

Runner's Day is back and this time round, there will be 2 workshops. One will be a seminar type and the other will be marathon training run. Look like i can incorporate the run into my marathon training schedule. Here are the details from the Runner's Day website:

RUNNERS' DAY is back for its fourth year with a knowledge-filled day of workshops and running-related activities at scenic HortPark!

Whoever said that running is a simple action of placing one foot before the other continuously is mistaken. Running is a complex and coordinated process that involves the entire body, not just the legs. Everyone runs differently. No one understands your body better than you do.

To better your running performance, you need to understand the running movement and your motion to avoid injuries. You need to train smart and listen to your body. Understanding the kind of nutrition your body requires and learning how to put together a training plan will equip you with the basics on becoming a better runner.

Covering areas of training for all levels of runners, the highlights of this year's Runners' Day include Yoga for Runners and ChiRunning®.


All levels of runners who are keen on improving their running experience. Whether you are attempting your first 5km or training for the full marathon distance, RUNNERS' DAY comprises of workshops of different levels. Each to suit your running goal.
