Columbus Regional Hospital’s Wellness Program will offer a mini-marathon (13.1 miles) training program that will meet for 15 Saturdays.
The program will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday in the CRH Kroot Auditorium.
The two races targeted are the April 27 Louisville Derby Festival and the May 4 Indianapolis 500 Festival.
Beginning and intermediate runners and walkers will be introduced to various training methods and will go on a weekly training walk/run. Classes will include presentations on nutrition, injury recognition and prevention, and mental preparation.
These spring half-marathons will provide a training base for anyone considering the inaugural Mill Race Marathon (half or full) in Columbus in September.
Cost for the training program is $55. Registration is required and can be done in person at Columbus Parks and Recreation, online at www.columbusparksandrec.com or by phone at 812-376-2680.
