Event description

Description

Almost daily the media report stories of women attacked while out running alone. Those who fight back are more likely to get away, yet without some form of training, it’s hard to know what to do. Join self-defense instructor Julie Morrill for an invigorating workshop on personal safety where you will learn how to fight back. The workshop will include safety tips, scenario discussions, and some empowering self-defense techniques. Bring your sense of humor and sense of adventure.

Sponsored by Moms on the Run.
