I FEEL THE NEED – THE NEED FOR SPEED!
FRC is teaming up with District Track Club (DTC) to bring you this one of a kind workshop! This workshop will be an overview on the importance and purpose of form and mechanics to help you increase your SPEED. On Sunday January 12, Coach Alex Amankwah of FRC, Coach Michelle Howell of FRC and Coach Tom Brumlik of DTC will be helping you become a faster and more efficient runner. Whether you are a speed demon or preparing for your first race, this workshop will have a place for you!
This workshop will include demonstrations, drills, cues on your form and a question and answer portion to ensure you are getting the most out of each step. You will get time to watch the pros breakdown what great mechanics looks like and even work through some drills on your own with feedback from our coaches. This workshop will be open to the public (that’s right, you don’t have to be a member) and be hands-on, so come ready to workout!
