RunSwansea – Seminar 2
Tuesday 12th January 2016
At Sancta Maria, we believe education is the best way to boost health and well-being within the local community. That is why we host a number of seminars, which are run by health professionals and experts, in the hope of improving awareness around certain health issues.
We are going to be hosting a number of seminar events, which are open to the public and will see a number of healthcare professionals speak.
The seminars will cover a number of topics ranging from nutrition, injury prevention and post-exercise recovery. Our second seminar, which is free to attend, will be held on Tuesday 12th January at 6pm in the LC. There will be a talk from Performance Nutritionist at Sport Wales, Tom Maynard. Spaces are limited and available on a first come first served basis, with bookings being taken at the LC’s reception desk and via telephone.
RunSwansea is a JCP Swansea Half Marathon initiative supported by HMT Sancta Maria with the aim of encouraging people across our community to enjoy running at any level. It is being run in partnership with The LC, 360 Beach & Watersports and Swansea Bay Parkrun.
We furthermore have a number of different events and seminars planned for the next 12 months with more information coming soon.
To book a place on HMT Sancta Maria’s series of seminars, please phone the LC on the main number 01792 466500.
