High Point Regional Health System Needs Runners With A Bucket List
Does your bucket list include completing a half marathon? If so, High Point Regional Health System and its Fitness Center, wants to help you accomplish that goal on March 20, 2010.
“High Point Regional’s ‘Lucky 13 Challenge’ will include up to 13 novice runners who will participate in the state’s half marathon,” said Steve Golinski, exercise physiologist at High Point Regional’s Fitness Center. “Participants will be selected based on a convincing letter in which candidates explain why they should be chosen for this opportunity.”
Once interested participants submit a letter explaining why they should be chosen for this opportunity, a fitness assessment will be given to ensure participants are cleared by a doctor.
This challenge is unique for several reasons. First, the Lucky 13 Challenge is for non-traditional runners; those who never dreamed of completing a half marathon or those who simply want to push themselves to accomplish something they never thought possible.
To prepare for the North Carolina Half Marathon, which will take place in High Point, the 13 participants will receive a number of benefits. This includes: a free fitness assessment to ensure participants are healthy enough to complete the program, 20 free supervised weeks of personal training by an exercise physiologist at High Point Regional’s Fitness Center, three educational workshops at the Fitness Center, one free run/walk gait analysis, discounts on membership to the Fitness Center and metabolic testing and a team T-shirt.
Only 13 participants will be selected for this unique opportunity and training will start soon; therefore, don’t miss this opportunity to cross another item off your bucket list.
