Content will continue to focus on state-of-the-art approaches for evaluation and management of the running athlete and will include: evaluation and management of posterior hip pain, proximal hamstring tendinopathy, extra articular hip surgery management, gait analysis, treatment options for chronic exertional compartment syndrome and popliteal artery entrapment syndrome, learning how USOPC is responding to COVID-19 in their preparation for Tokyo 2021, mental health of the running athlete, an update from USA Track & Field and regenerative medicine for tendinopathy.

The usual Saturday session will, for the first time, be included in the price of registration and will feature exciting research focusing on the running athlete presented by selected authors.
