Fall 2018 Distance Running Informational Expo

Distance Running Informational Expo
Saturday, July 28th
10AM-3PM (Open House)

We are excited to invite you to this event, focused on getting you READY and INFORMED for long distance training.  Tackling long mileage is very rewarding and challenging, and it requires that you are properly prepared!  We invite you to join us on July 28th to hear from product experts, and be inspired!

We have three really big things happening that you won't want to miss!

1) An incredibly motivational presentation by the ONE AND ONLY Dick Beardsley.  Dick is a running legend and we are so lucky to host him on the 28th.  Learn more and RSVP for the Dick Beardsley Presentation HERE.  This presentation has limited seating for 60 attendees and RSVP is required.  This will fill up fast, don't wait!! Grab your spot!

2) Brand Experts, Demo Product, and Education:  Join us anytime 10AM-3PM to learn from product experts!  Long distance training requires the right gear to prevent injury and to keep you comfortable and healthy.  It's not just about the shoes....there's much more to it.  Visit us on the 28th to learn how compression, hydration, nutrition, self-massage all play a big role in healthy training.  You'll have a chance to demo product during the 10K Strava Run (below info!), test it out, see what you like, and experience it.  And... you'll save 10% on these featured vendors! 

Featured Vendors:

  • New Balance
  • CEP Compression
  • Nathan Hydration
  • Gu 
  • Garmin
  • Trigger point Therapy
We will host a couple medical partners that are your KEY to staying healthy.  Meet them now, before you risk injury, to ask your aches and pains questions.  Have a nagging muscle ache? Ask about it now.  Have recurring tendonitis? Ask about it now!  Being prepared with how to treat aches, pains, and recurring injuries is a key part of long distance training.  Remember- running IS an ache sport.
  • Breakthrough Physical Therapy
  • Wake Forest Baptist Hospital V02 Testing (Informational)

 4) 10K Strava Run:  Run our 10K Strava course on July 28th and be entered to win!  Course will be open starting at 6AM (directional signs and cue cards available that morning at Fleet Feet).  Demo product will be available to test out on your run from 10AM-3PM.  Everyone that participates in the 10K course on July 28th, AND POSTS THEIR RUN ON STRAVA, will be entered to win a $100 certificate toward a new Garmin purchase. 

5) And more:

  • Coaches for each program will be on hand to answer additional questions about training, training philosophy, and how you can best prepare for your event. 
  • DoJo (the absolute yummiest donuts you've ever tasted) will be on site with their DoJo truck!
