If you’ve been around the blog or the podcast for awhile, you may remember that about a year ago I was talking about putting together a virtual running summit. The plan was to bring in a dozen or so speakers and have them present on topics that would be of interest to runners such as injuries, form, nutrition, and so on.
Yeah, about that…
Obviously my virtual running summit never came to fruition, so why bring up those memories?
Well, Coach Trey and Brandon from the Connect Run Club are putting together what looks to be a pretty awesome virtual running summit, and they have asked yours truly to be one of the speakers/presenters!
I’ll be speaking on Tuesday, the 23rd of February at 2 PM.
I’ll see you there, right?

How Can I Get Access to the Virtual Running Summit?
Once you do that, all you need to do is show up! Each presentation will be happening live, and will be 100% free to watch. I believe that each session will also include live Q&A, so it’s definitely worth attending live!
If you can’t be there live, because obviously you can’t just put your life on hold for a two week virtual running summit, replays of each session will be available for free for 48 hours.
(That might be the biggest reason you should sign up if you’re interested in this summit, so that you’ll get the emails with the links to the replays.)
Want the videos for longer than 48 hours? Not a problem.
Once you sign up, there will be an option to purchase a lifetime pass to be able to access all of the recordings from the virtual running summit as often as you’d like. The cost right now is $39, which really is a steal for the value of all of these presentations, and will be going up during the conference. (First to $49, then to the final price of $59)
All of that pricing info is clearly spelled out to you if you head over to the main website for the virtual running summit, and once you sign up they will send some reminders of the price increases and what not as well.
Is the Virtual Running Summit Worth It?
Now, I clearly haven’t seen the other presentations yet, so perhaps I’m overstepping slightly by thinking that the summit is worth the $39 price tag.
But here’s the thing.
My goal is to make my portion of the virtual running summit worth $39 on it’s own! I’ll be speaking on running injuries and, more importantly, the prevention of running injuries.
We both know that running injuries really suck, so by simply putting into action some of the tips I’ll be sharing you’ll definitely be able to minimize the risk of sustaining a running injury anytime soon.
If that’s not worth $39 (or $49, or $59) on it’s own, I don’t know what is.
And even if I fail to deliver $39 worth of value, say I only come through with $32, as long as you can find $7 worth of value in ANY of the other presentations you’ll have gotten your money’s worth.
So is splurging on the lifetime access to the virtual running summit worth it? Yeah, I think it is.
