Want to learn how to build your running brand? Join me at the inaugural Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half & Festival at Boston College in Newton, Mass., from June 6-8. I’ll be on a panel discussing that very topic, along with Matt Frazier of No Meat Athlete and Katy Widrick of Healthy Living in a Hectic World. Runner’s World Editor at Large Mark Remy of Remy’s World fame will be our esteemed moderator. If you’ve ever wondered how to take your running blog to the next level, this is a seminar you don’t want to miss.
We’re just one of the dozen seminars that cover race strategy, gear, training, fuel, masters running, women’s running and dog running. Yup, you can even learn how to train with your pup. For the inaugural event, Runner’s World is bringing out the big guns. Shalane Flanagan, Bart Yasso, Paralympian Sarah Reinertsen, race director Dave McGillivray and, of course, the Runner’s World editorial team will be on hand to chew these topics at the Runner’s World Health and Fitness Expo.
But, of course, the seminars aren’t the main event. The weekend includes the half marathon on Sunday and Runner’s World 5K and Runner’s World 10K on Saturday. All runners receive a finisher’s medal and shirt—tech for the half, event shirt for the 5K and 10K.
As I announced last month in Race The Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half With Me, I’ll be tackling the 5K and half marathon as a member of the Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half blogging crew. (They’re covering my race entries, dorm room—yes, dorm room!—and some meals.) More intrepid folks are completing the Hat Trick: 5K, 10K, and half marathon. And the Five & Dime is yet another option with the back-to-back 5K and 10K on Saturday.
