Runner Safety Workshop at Marathon Sports
Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Join the global running community in support of Runner Safety Awareness Week! Learn how to stay safe while doing what you love.

Almost daily the media report stories of violent physical attacks on runners. Those who fight back are more likely to get away, yet without some form of training, it’s hard to know what to do. Join ROAR TRAINING instructors Julie Morrill and Rebecca Tolkoff for a seminar on personal safety where you will learn how to fight back. The training will include safety tips, scenario discussions, and some empowering self-defense techniques. Bring your sense of humor and sense of adventure.

All under-18 participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Recommended for ages 14+.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN THIS COURSE?

  • How to respond to violent situations;
  • Basic tools for fighting back, including: the ideal stance to help maintain your balance and get away and basic “tools” for fighting, such as punches, kicks, elbows, and knees;
  • Defending against common attacks, such as: wrist grabs, bear hugs, chokes, and being pushed to the ground.

This event is part of a national and global movement in support of Runner Safety Awareness Week (#RSAW) in partnership with The Run Collective.

La Chandeleur at the French Cultural Center
Feb 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Meet and mingle with other Francophiles while celebrating La Chandeleur!

Also called Crêpe Day, la Chandeleur is a French holiday during which people traditionally eat crêpes and drink cidre. Though la Chandeleur is often associated with the Catholic holiday of Candlemas, it actually stems from pagan traditions. And, of course, there is the traditional coin ritual: if you can flip a crêpe while holding a coin in your other hand, you and your family will not have to worry about financial problems. There is even a fun legend that ties Napoleon’s misfortune with his time in Russia with the flipping of the crêpes!

The French Cultural Center will observe this popular holiday with crêpes and a variety of delicious toppings. All ages are invited and welcome to attend!

Please note: When you register for a family, you are registering per family. You will be required to answer a question on the number of family members that will attend.

Early RSVP recommended.
