A free training clinic will be held on Thursday, Aug. 18, to help prepare participants for the LoCo Motion walking and running event, a breast cancer fundraiser taking place this fall in the Lowcountry.
This free 45-minute seminar walking/running will give tips on hydration, nutrition and footwear. The clinic will be held at 6 p.m. at the Palmetto Running Company, 22 Plantation Park Drive, Bluffton.
Additionally, organizers are offering a condensed 10-week training calendar for those who want to train on their own. The calendar can be found at www.dothelocomotion.org.
Training sessions are also being offered twice a week to help participants prepare for the challenge.
