Jay Diener will be hosting a race walk clinic in Portsmouth NH on Sunday , August 15, 2010. Here are the details:
There is a racewalking clinic scheduled for this Sunday, August 15. It will be at the Spinnaker Point recreation facility in Portsmouth (www.cityofportsmouth.com/recreation/spoint.htm). The clinic will start at 9:00, and will last for 1-2 hours.
The guest instructor for this clinic is Tom Eastler. Tom has been teaching and coaching racewalking in Maine for 30 years. His high school program is among the best in the country, and his athletes regularly compete on a national and international levels. His son was a two-time Olympic racewalker. So, clearly, Tom knows his stuff! Whether you are a beginning racewalker, or someone looking to improve form and/or speed, you will get some great help at this clinic.
There is a $5 charge to use the facilities at Spinnaker Point for the day (including lockers, showers, indoor track, cardio and weight rooms, indoor pool, etc.), and we are asking for a $20 donation for the clinic. All of the $20 will go to Tom and his team.
If you are planning on attending, please come a little early so we’ll all be ready to go at 9:00. Please wear shorts (it is important for the instructors to be able to see your knees), and racewalking shoes or racing flats.
Please write to Jay Diener at coastwalker AT comcast.net to let him know if you are going to the clinic. You can also write to Jay with any questions about the clinic.
