The Critz Tybee Run Fest Has Something For Everyone
Massage Clinic at the Critz Tybee Run Fest Back for 2013
The Critz Tybee Run Fest is quickly approaching with a myriad of events and opportunities that includes fun for all ages. This year, the Run Fest is happy to once again bring back the popular massage clinic provided by The Savannah School of Massage Therapy.
The Savannah School of Massage Therapy Training, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, will have their massage clinic set up on Saturday February 2, 2013 starting at 7a.m. at the Ocean Plaza Beach Resort on Tybee Island. A team of Savannah School of Massage students will provide ten minute massages for $5 and all proceeds will go towards the school of massage and is tax-deductible. The clinic will function on a first come, first served basis and runners will be able to sign up with a massage coordinator to secure their spot. This is an excellent opportunity for runners to enjoy a soothing and rejuvenating massage, at a fraction of the regular price, shortly after they cross the finish line. It is important for the runners to remember to keep walking after the race and stay hydrated. Sitting down or stopping abruptly can cause muscle cramps before your massage. Massage can be very beneficial to your body, especially in relaxing tight muscles after the race. An added point for massages is to be sure to tell your therapist of any medical conditions you may have and one or two areas you would like them to focus on during the massage.
“I’m very delighted to bring our students to the Critz Tybee Run Fest this year. We have given massage at several races and runs in Savannah and Tybee since 1999 and look forward to helping runners recuperate faster after this event,” stated Christopher J. Masters, Educational Director of Savannah School of Massage Therapy Training.
The Ocean Plaza Beach Resort address is: 1401 Strand Avenue, Tybee Island, GA 31328. Signs with more information will direct interested parties on race day.
