Post Race: Yoga Work Out!
Crossing the finish line after any race is a positive thing, but no one likes the aches and pains you experience from a hard run. Muscle tightness won’t be a worry after this race because we are having a calming yoga session following the awards ceremony! Just bring a towel or yoga mat to create your own place of zen. Breakfast will also be provided including bagels, fruit, granola bars, coffee and hydration.
