About From the time the ancient Greek runner Pheidippides ran from Sparta to marathon to announce the Greeks' victory in the Peloponnesian War, humans have had a compelling interest with endurance. There are more than 300 marathons in the U.S. each year, including San Diego's own Rock 'n' Roll marathon, with more than 400,000 people running them. It's an understatement to say that running a marathon has become very popular. However, most people who run a marathon have little running experience and don't know how to adequately prepare for such a big event. This workshop will discuss the science of running a marathon to give people that guidance so that they can be successful. Pre-Registration Required Space is limited.
