Wings just received confirmation from the last of our guest speakers for the 2105 “Indian Running” Coaches Clinic. Ryan Bolton of the Santa Fe-based Harambee Project will be offering attendees insights into how he managed to coach an athlete like Caroline Rotich to a win at the Boston Marathon this year! How cool is that? If we’re lucky, Caroline will also join us to share a bit of her story…

Once again, registration is limited and only $75.00. This “tuition” includes a Wings t-shirt, all clinic presentations and materials and three meals (Thurs- Dinner, Fri & Sat- Lunch). Registration information can be found on the Wings website HERE.
