Running is one of the most popular forms of youth sports participation, with approximately 450,000 - 750,000 adolescents participating in high school track and cross country programs throughout the United States. And while sports participation brings many positives to the lives of youth runners, it also brings with it a likelihood of sustaining a running-related injury. In fact, up to 65% percent of runners sustain an injury annually.
The Runner's Symposium is dedicated to growing the sport of running through enhancing collaborations between coaches, runners, parents, and the sports medicine medical community. This year's symposium is dedicated to the theme of "Building a Strong Team Culture". This year's event will feature keynote presentations from David Riddle, a local ultramarathoner, Nutritionist Ashley Meuser, Sports Pyschologist Barbara Walker, and Running Specialist Physical Therapist & Researcher Jeff Taylor-Haas.
