Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

9th Annual Sandman Extreme - 1/2 Marathon / 9 Miler / 5K

 

About Sandman

9th annual Sandman Extreme for Excellence Half Marathon starts in downtown Wytheville, Va., snow or shine, at the recreation center at 250 S 4th Street. The run descends in the first mile to a crossing of Reed Creek at 2,100 feet elevation, before beginning a 4.5 mile climb to the top of Sand Mt. at 3,100'. The climb to the top is on hard surface road, with about 4 miles on packed gravel. A shorter 9 mile alternate run is available without the full climb. A 5K option will also be avaiable this year. Winners in age categories will receive customized tote bags. The event is a fundraiser for the Wythe County Public School Foundation for Excellence--we're all about excellence.

Pre-registration will close at midnight on Thursday, January 1th. You must pre-register by that date to be guaranteed a long-sleeved t-shirt.

 T-SHIRTS ARE NOT GUARANTEED ON DAY OF RACE WITHOUT PRE-REGISTRATION AND WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ORDER
