Evansville, Indiana (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
ProRehab’s expert Therapists and Certified Athletic Trainers are pleased to be providing support to athletes ahead of the October 3, 2015 YMCA Evansville Half Marathon as part of Team 13 from July 7 to October 1.
Team 13 training, which is open to the community, is designed to help individuals at all fitness levels train for the half marathon. Sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 PM and on Saturdays at 7:00 AM. A kickoff meeting will take place on June 27th and sessions will begin at various locations throughout the city to allow participants to adequately train and prepare. The program is $ 20 for YMCA members and $ 30 for non-members, and registration can be completed at training locations throughout the first three weeks.
Several of ProRehab’s therapists and Certified Athletic Trainers will participate in the training sessions, providing bike support, first aid, and hydration to participants during the longer runs. Additionally, ProRehab staff members will run formal seminars on injury prevention, health and safety while training for the race, and help check team members for injury.
In addition to participating in the half marathon on race day, ProRehab staff members will offer hydration to participants from their first-aid tent, where runners can also seek medical attention pre- and post-race for issues like dehydration, cramping, and joint aches and pains.
“This will be the sixth year I’ve been involved in the Evansville Half Marathon,” said Mindy Riley, PT, DPT, MTC, CSCS, ProRehab physical therapist, and Team 13 training member. “Getting to know and train with other participants through Team 13 in previous years is very fulfilling as I get to watch firsthand as team members reach their goals. I look forward to helping people get out there and prepare for a healthy, fun race this fall!”
