The RTC annual banquet will be held at the Canadian Honker Events at Apache. We will recognize the 2017 service and Dwight Pierson award winners as well as the Grand Prix winners.

It is with great honor and privilege that we announce our speaker for the banquet. Dr. Michael Joyner will speak on the "The 2 Hour Marathon: Lessons for 3 & 4 Hour Runners". Dr. Joyner will review the ideas behind strategies to break the 2-hour marathon barrier and discuss how these related ideas can be applied by recreational athletes to improve their running and set personal bests.

Michael J. Joyner, M.D., is the Caywood Professor of Anesthesiology at the Mayo Clinic where he was named Distinguished Investigator in 2010. His research focuses on exercise physiology, human performance, blood pressure regulation, metabolism, and transfusion practices. After receiving his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Arizona he obtained residency and fellowship training at the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Joyner has held leadership positions at Mayo, in the extramural research community, and with leading journals. He has given a number of major lectureships including the ACSM Wolffe Lecture, and APS Walter B. Cannon Lecture.

Dr.Joyner's interest in athletics includes developing the original "2-hour" marathon concept in the early 1990s. On a personal level he has run a 2:25 marathon and finished 15th in his age group for the mile swim at U.S. Masters swimming nationals. He has also been interviewed numerous times in popular print and electronic media and written on exercise and health for the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Outside and Runner's World.
