I am heading back to Peterborough, Ontario on Monday for a visit with my family and for the COC Olympic Celebration. I wanted to do something to thank everyone that supported me before and during the Olympics and so I will be putting on a free racewalking clinic. Here is the information that you will need to know!

When: Saturday, September 22nd at 9am (roughly 2 hours long)

Where: Trent University Track

Who: Everyone and anyone is invited to come, no racewalking experience necessary
