Event Details

The ORC Distance Clinic, which will again be led by Hilary Catron, will return this year beginning on April 12 at Peak Performance on Cass St.  The Clinic will focus on the Heartland Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K or Relay event.  Hilary has done an outstanding job keeping the Clinic going the past couple years despite the impact of the pandemic.  We are taking steps to rejuvenate the program this year to provide an excellent training experience for participants.  Clinic sessions will be on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. and Sundays at 8:00 a.m. and will continue into August. The first three Wednesday sessions each month, beginning at 6:00 p.m., will include a speaker who will discuss a marathon/half marathon related topic, followed by an optional group run.  The fourth Wednesday will be a mix-up run of various distances at various locations to become familiar with different trails in Omaha.

The speaker portion of each session lasts about 45 minutes and is then followed by a run.  Speakers recognized as experts in their fields will cover topics to include:  Nutrition; PT-injury prevention and care; Strength training for runners; Yoga for runners; CORE; Q&A with local running experts; massage therapy; and sports psychology.  The Wednesday runs start about 7:00 p.m. with distances varying between 5 and 10 miles. The Sunday session is a long run, under the coordination of ORC Board member Marty Ertz, initially beginning at Chalco at 8:00 a.m. Distances will vary between 4 and 20 miles. As the clinic progresses, Sunday session meeting times and locations will vary.  Pam Car, ORC Board member and an RRCA certified running coach, will provide specific training and feedback.  An End of Season Banquet sponsored by ORC is also planned to share and celebrate the running season.  The Clinic is free to ORC members but will require non-members to join the ORC ($20 Young Professional or $25 Individual membership).  You will be getting a lot of training, encouragement and fellowship for your money.
