The key to success is proper education and initiative. Ashley Ciprick is passionate about training for LONG distance running. She ran her first half marathon in 2015 and since has trained on different terrain in multiple countries. Currently she's preparing for this year's Canadian Death Race, 125 km with a 24 hour cut off, over 17,000 feet of elevation change and a major river crossing. She will be coming in April 25th between 18:00-19:00 to discuss how to break down each stride and how to program for cardiovascular training in conjunction with strength training.
