World Record Coach Renato Canova To Headline 2011 Super Distance Summit

Internationally acclaimed distance running coach, Renato Canova, will headline a stellar cast of speakers at the 2011 Super Distance Summit to be held on the campus of Queens University of Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina, January 8-9, 2011. The former Italian national team coach will present his training philosophies that have resulted in numerous Olympic and World Champions and the World Record for the men‚s 3,000-meter steeplechase.

The Summit has assembled a lineup that will arguably be unrivaled in the United States. Joining Canova will be multi-time US Olympic coach, Dr. Joe Vigil, who is regarded as America‚s top distance running clinician. Vigil will present a groundbreaking approach to coaching middle-distance runners based on the latest research. Also presenting will be Bill Aris, arguably the most successful high school cross country coach in the nation, having coached Fayetteville-Manlius (NY) to a record four-consecutive Nike Team XC Nationals girls team titles.

In addition, Jay Dicharry, the director of the SPEED Clinic at the University of Virginia, will share his revolutionary approach to correcting biomechanical problems that have aided numerous National and World Champions in overcoming injuries and maximizing performance. Greg McMillan, the coach of Team USA Arizona, will also speak. McMillan‚s contributions to Running Times and Runners World magazines, along with his string of US national champion athletes, have established him as one of the sport‚s authorities. Summit director Scott Simmons, coach of the 25k American Record, will present as well.

The Super Distance Summit will continue its popular Speaker‚s Dinner and, with the support of Nike, will provide every attendee with a pair of the company‚s perennially popular training shoes, the Pegasus 27.
