Champaign Surplus hosting Outdoor You next Tuesday

Ever want to talk to someone who has ran quite literally all over the world? Champaign Surplus is hosing Outdoor You on Tuesday, December 15th at 6 p.m., and will be offering just that. Neena Tripathy will speak about her experience training for and running a marathon in so many different climates, including the frigid temperatures of Antarctica.

Nenna has completed eight marathons on five different continents including the Maui Marathon, the Australia Solar Eclipse Marathon, the China Great Wall Marathon, the South Africa Big 5 Marathon, and the Antarctica Marathon, and the Chicago Marathon (three separate times!)

Get your questions answered about the proper gear needed for running in cold weather as well as tips and advice on training locally for running abroad. Per usual, this event will be absolutely free and open to the public.
