The CVRR 5K running clinic also continues to be a success on Saturday mornings with educational tips from local health professionals and coaches and small running groups for all levels. New to the clinic this year is post-run yoga for those interested.

The clinic still has room for those interested: visit for more info or just show up Saturday morning by 9 a.m. at the lower Native Sons Hall. The clinic wraps up with a 5km Fun Run March 19 that is open to the public.
