Engadine Summer Run 2014: Training Series on the original course
In preparation for the Engadine Summer Run on the 17th August, participants can join a series of five training sessions on the main course from Sils to Samedan, during which professionals will pass on tips.
The last snow on the course of the Engadine Summer Run has melted and preparation for the Engadine Summer Run on the 17th August has begun. Five official training evenings will be held on the course prior to the event.
The training series began on 27th May on the section from Sils to Silvaplana under the guidance of Anne-Marie Flammersfeld. The President of the Organizing Committee and desert runner spoke on the themes "correct running technique", "breathing", and "warm-up" during the training session. The next trainings on 17th June, and the 8th & 29th July will be presented and accompanied by Ironman Finisher Sascha Holsten from Gut Training.
The last training will be on 14th August, in the week preceding the big day. Following the training, there will be a presentation on the psychological aspects of competition. Other topics discussed during the training are "training planning", "nutrition", "recuperation", and "preparation for competition".
Running enthusiasts, locals and guests, are welcome to attend the trainings, for which registration is not necessary. The exact meeting place for each training and the times of the trainings are posted on the event website, and published in the Engadiner Post. Participants in the trainings will also be entered in the draw for a starting place in the Engadine Summer Run.
