Registration open for 'Marathon Training' class


UNL Campus Recreation is offering two sessions of its Marathon and Half Marathon Training class in the spring. Session 1 meets 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Jan. 17 to May 1. Session 2 meets 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Jan. 19 to May 3.

The classes are for runners of all levels and will prepare individuals for the annual Lincoln Marathon or Half Marathon, which is May 6. The 15-week class includes running technique, weight training, nutrition, injury prevention, motivation and goal setting, a technical running shirt, a water bottle, weekly group runs, weekly 'Yoga for Runners' class, and an individualized running form analysis by a physical therapist.

Cost is $100. Due to limited space, the classes are open only to UNL students and Campus Rec members.

Registration for this class does not include your registration fee into the 2012 Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon (or any other race) nor does it guarantee your automatic entry into the event. Class participants are responsible for their own 2012 Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon entry registration.

The 2012 Lincoln Marathon registration opened Dec. 1 and as of Dec. 5 more than 3,000 people had already signed up. The race will be capped at 10,000 runners. If you plan to participate in the training class, we encourage you to register for the race now as the race will likely be sold out prior to the first day of training.
