Runsafer Clinic by Todd Williams
Time and Time again we read headlines about runners, joggers, and walkers being assaulted while out exercising. RunSafer is a program created by Two-Time Olympic Distance Runner and Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Todd Williams. This one hour session will teach you safety techniques and tips to help protect yourself in a dangerous situation.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Todd Williams is one of our country’s true greats, twice an Olympian in the 10,000m (’92/’96) and a top 10 finisher in the World Cross-Country Championship. Williams’ greatest performance, however, came at the 1995 Gate River Run 15K where he (only weeks out of the pool for injury rehab) broke the American Record with a time of 42:22. For you 5K folks that is 14:07 x 3 times back to back. The American Record still stands.
