Whether you’re a recreational runner or a professional marathoner, long-distance training triggers a musculoskeletal response in the body that, if not understood, may increase the risk of injury.

Hospital for Special Surgery, an Orthopedic Consultant to NYRR for the ING New York City Marathon, is pleased to host this NYRR Learning Series event to teach marathon runners what to expect, from a musculoskeletal perspective, as they train, and how to prevent injury leading up to and after the marathon. Viewers will improve their understanding of the causes of running injury and learn to identify and avoid common mistakes, improve their running form, and incorporate strength-training exercises to minimize risk of injury and maximize performance. The program is targeted to both first-time and experienced marathoners.
