Meet «Born To Run» author Christopher McDougall! Join Chris on a «Fun Run» around the Myers Park «Booty Loop» at 5:00PM, then get the behind the scenes story of his best-selling book (and inspiration for the Ultra Running Company) «Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen» at 7:00PM.
This amazing duo of events is being put on by Queens University of Charlotte, and is open to the public. We figured since there was some downtime, we'd have some fun hanging out at URC with some snacks and drinks. Come to the run, the happy hour, the presentation, or all three, but don't miss this first of its kind event!
The Fun Run will meet at the main entrance to Queens University at 1900 Selwyn Avenue, while the presentation itself will be in the lower level of Sykes Building, Ketner Auditorium. Here's a link to the Queens University campus map to help find your way: goo.gl/kTGGrg.
Happy hour will be at URC-Myers Park, located at 1027 Providence Road.
Chris is one of the most influential voices in running today (he — quite literally — created an entire segment of the running shoe market) and will be an exciting and informative speaker! Be sure to stick around following the presentation for a book signing!
