If you’re planning on running the upcoming Manitoba Marathon, or any marathon for that matter, and you are eager to train outside in the winter, take these safety and performance tips from Dean Kriellaars, an associate professor in the department of physical therapy at the University of Manitoba.

Kriellaars is a scientist of the Manitoba Institute of Child Health. His research is directed to physical literacy, physical activity, and obesity and he has been awarded national and international awards for scientific research and innovation. He works with Canadian Sport for Life, PHE Canada, the Sport Medicine and Science Council of Manitoba, Cirque du Soleil and the National Circus School, as well as the RCMP on community wellness initiatives.
