Another in the popular series of Beginning Runners Classes will be held at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center again this fall. The first class will meet on Tuesday evening, Sept. 8, in the lobby meeting room, next to the information desk. Start time for the meeting is 6 p.m., but everyone is asked to arrive 15 minutes early if possible to process paperwork.

The series will run from Sept. 8 through Oct. 27. Each meeting will include a classroom instruction period followed by running on the streets around the hospital. On the first night, each attendee should come dressed and prepared to run/walk one-half mile.

Classroom instruction will include such topics as shoes and equipment, nutrition, injury prevention, stretching and strengthening, safety, and race day and beyond. Please do not buy new shoes before the first class.

Total cost of the class series is $65. The fee will include all instruction, individual coaching, entry into the Salisbury Rowan Runners for one year, a Dri-fit training shirt and entry into one 5K race. The classes are sponsored by the Salisbury Rowan Runners, Salisbury Parks and Recreation and Novant Health.
