ChiRunning Workshop April 4th at CMC/DHK

March 16, 2015
Keene, NH

A ChiRunning® Workshop, a technique to run easier and injury-free, will be offered at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene (CMC/DHK) on Saturday, April 4. Prior to the half-day Workshop, Vince Vaccaro, a master ChiRunning® and ChiWalking® coach, will provide a talk on “Running a 5K” at 9 a.m. followed by the ChiRunning Workshop from 10:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Both the talk and the Workshop will be held at CMC/DHK’s North Conference Rooms 1 and 2.

The Workshop will focus on learning the basic components of the ChiRunning® technique with the goal that participants will be able to apply the technique in personal running programs. Mr. Vacarro will guide participants through many exercises and drills designed to leave individuals with a clear sense of what the ChiRunning ® technique feels like in their bodies. The Workshop will feature demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills. 

Saturday’s talk on “Running a 5K” is open to the public at no charge. Saturday’s half-day workshop is $135 per person. Participants are encouraged to dress comfortably.
