 Local Athletes Will Help to Promote Elite Level Running in the Hudson Valley

 LAGRANGE, NY, March 7, 2018Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance, a total body treatment, injury prevention and functional movement practice in LaGrange and Fishkill, NY, announces the launch of Hudson Valley’s first Elite Running Team. This initiative is in collaboration with Fleet Feet Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County’s locally-owned and operated running specialty store.   

 Elite Running Team members will be selected through an application process in which they will be asked to provide information on their running background, experience and recent, noteworthy racing accomplishments. The team will consist of 10 athletes, ideally five men and five women, all of whom will exemplify the core values set for the Elite Running Team. 

The selected athletes will receive a branded team kit to be worn during designated events, including complimentary footwear provided by Brooks Running. In addition to paid entry fees for several local races during the 2018 season, team members also will receive an in-depth running evaluation along with a personalized strength and conditioning plan from Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance. Selected athletes may be asked to write race reports or blog posts, promote local running through social media outlets, and serve as guest mentors for the Fleet Feet Running Club and other community events that promote running in the community. 

 “We are excited to showcase the athletic talent of runners in the Hudson Valley and facilitate their advancement,” said Justin Feldman, Doctor of Physical Therapy and owner of Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance. “This will be a great opportunity to support and recognize the achievements of local athletes and promote elite running and racing in the Hudson Valley.”
