Run with a Doc

In this exciting new training series brought to you by SummaCare, runners have the opportunity to meet-up with Summa Health providers before hitting the Blue Line as a group! All distances and paces are welcome, including walkers. Here's what to expect:

  • Then, the doctor will run along with you on various sections of the Blue Line and be available for questions and suggestions as you move through your group run.
  • Every run of the series will introduce you to a new Summa Health provider and cover different race-related topics.
