Black and Gold Running Symposium

University of Iowa Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science

Saturday February 16, 2013

The University of Iowa Department of Physical Therapy is hosting the 6th annual Black and Gold Running Symposium February 16th from 8am-4pm at the Medical Education and Research Facility on the University of Iowa campus.

This year’s symposium will focus on high school runners.  Topics covered this year include: nutrition for high school athletes, training a multisport athlete to excel in season and to transition between sports including a hands-on session (bring or wear athletic clothing).  The symposium will also include two panels: provider panel will discuss how clinicians work together and who to contact when injury occurs and panel will discuss weight training in the schools—who is in charge of your high school weight room and how can they implement running specific programs.  Finally, Natasha Kaiser-Brown, head track coach at Drake University, will discuss what college coaches look for in high school runners, and Mike Jay, long-time high school coach and Drake Relays announcer, will discuss “What drives you?  Or do you not allow yourself to be driven?”

Registration for the event is available online at uiowarunningsymposium2013.eventzilla.net.  Cost for the symposium is $40 ($25 for high school or college students) before February 8th and $50 ($35 for students) after.  Lunch is provided.  T-shirts are included in fee if registered before February 8th.  Email patrick-mccue@uiowa.edu with questions.
