The Norton Sports Health Derby Festival Training Program to prepare runners and walkers for the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and miniMarathon kicked off Jan. 11.
The free 15-week Norton Sports Health Training Program offers training tips and weekly group runs for participants with all levels of experience.
The kick-off included distribution of the free training manual; overview of the 2018 miniMarathon and Marathon; as well as introduction of the Norton Sports Health Training experts and physicians. Participants had the opportunity to meet and talk with members of the Norton Sports Health team to get their questions answered before they begin training. Attendees also had the chance to check out the exhibits at the Kentucky Derby Museum commemorating the annual Run for the Roses.
