PSYCHING TEAM

The SLC Marathon Psyching Team is here to help you with the mental side of running. We are sport psychologists and other mental health professionals in the Salt Lake City area who work with runners to develop mental skills to prepare you to have the best, most enjoyable race experience.

Because we’re affiliated with the race, our services are completely free and include:

  • Goal-setting
  • Psyching up
  • Breaking through when you “hit the wall”
  • Relaxing before the start of the race (or the night before)
  • Any other mental aspect of running

Find us at the Expo, race start or finish line to get you in the right head space. Contact Dr. Davis VanderVeen for more information or to get involved.
