The Tryon Running Club will host the Second Annual Running Clinic on Saturday, June 11 from 8 – 9 a.m. at The Blue Wall Passage of the Palmetto Trail behind Lake Lanier. Triathlete and running coach Katie Malone will offer group and individual coaching in three areas: beginner basics; hill training and trail running.

19‐time Ironman® Katie Malone is a local triathlete and running coach who works with athletes of all abilities. Her main requirement is that participants have desire and commitment, believe in themselves and work hard. Coach Katie worked with new and seasoned runners last June at the TRC’s first running clinic. Many of those beginners recently completed their first 5Ks or 10Ks.

The Tryon Running Club is a social running/walking group dedicated to bringing people together while exercising in the scenic Landrum-Tryon-Columbus area. All ages and abilities are welcome to join up for group run/walks and there are no club dues. Runs are posted on the group’s Facebook page.
