Christo Landry | Professional Runner

Sometimes the best advice you can get for anything, is from someone who has done what you want to do – and been wildly successful doing it. That is the case for Christo Landry, a native of Wisconsin who held the American Record in the 25k and was a three-time All-American cross country runner in college. He’s also a running coach and motivational speaker – in other word, just what we need right now! He gives his experienced advice to Running Around Charlotte.

Chris Christakos | Novant Health

We run for our health, great fitness, and yes… for our life. Which is why we like to check in with our Novant Health physicians, who also help us stay healthy. Dr. Chris Christakos is a sport medicine doctor, and he joins us now for Running Around Charlotte with some tips for running fitness.

Shannon Houlihan | Para Guide Foundation

Running a marathon is a big enough challenge for most people, but now imagine you are running the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon with a visual impairment that doesn’t let you see the crowd, or bumps in the road, or other obstacles as clearly as the other runners. Para Guides exists for just that reason. Shannon Houlihan is a triathlete who wanted to help others, so she and another runner started the Para Guide Foundation to help visually impaired athletes.
