A youth Cross Country Workshop will be hosted at the YMCA Paul Cline Memorial Youth Sports Complex July 28 and 29.  

Students who will be entering 6th through 12th grade in the fall are invited to participate at the workshop, which will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. both days.

According to a release, participants will engage in workouts and hear from guest speakers on topics such as injury prevention, running biomechanics, footwear and nutrition.

“We have a lot of talented, young runners locally,” Tiffany Hubman said. “I’m excited to offer this workshop to give them more knowledge to help them prevent injuries and learn about opportunities to run cross country on the college level.”

Hubman has three years of experience in personal training and is certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She ran cross country at Independence High School and West Liberty University.

She studied biology at Mountain State University and will be attending the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine this fall.
