We are once again pleased to offer the Walk to Run class beginning this September. Walk to Run is designed to be an inclusive fitness training class for anyone looking to either transition from walking to running, or to add a new activity that will boost your cardiovascular fitness. Anyone, especially people who have never been keen on running, are welcome. Typically this class will meet outside of Kane Track (near the Friedman Wrestling Center), but as our class progresses, we will be running on various routes and trails around central campus. In addition to the running class, there will be 2 optional sessions of strength conditioning offered on August 31 and September 7. If you are not currently running, this is a great moment for you to build just a bit of strength and learn techniques to complement your workouts. Class is open to the entire Cornell community. Instructor is Ruth Merle-Doyle, Cornell Wellness staff and exercise physiologist. Contact Ruth if you'd like more details. Class limit is 20.
