Reinvent Your Running with Eric Orton
March 26, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
When we look at the limits of our potential how far can we go? How do we put all the pieces together and become strong, fast, efficient, and healthy runners who can challenge ourselves to run beyond our personal limits?
Join Skinny Skis and Marmot as we welcome Born to Run Coach Eric Orton, author of the book, “The Cool Impossible,” to share his formula for reinventing your running for the trails and mountains. Eric will explain how to get the most out of your miles by focusing on strength, technique, and run training.
Eric Orton is a world-renowned running coach, training recreational racers, competitive age groupers, to elite ultra marathoners.
Eric earned international notoriety as the coach of Christopher McDougall, a relationship that initially began with Eric helping McDougall train for and joining him to race the 50-mile Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon with the Tarahumara Indians. That story served as the foundation for McDougall’s 2009 best-selling book, “Born To Run.”
In 2013, Eric authored his first book, “The Cool Impossible,” as a way to help put it all together and become strong, fast, and healthy runners.
The former fitness director for the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Eric is a Marmot Athlete and the founder of his Mountain Running Academy here in Jackson Hole.
