The CASEM Summer Endurance Sport Medicine Course returns and we are once again holding the course in conjunction with the Ironman Muskoka 70.3 event in Huntsville.   The course will take place at the picturesque resort of Walker Lake (Norseman Restaurant) on the Friday, July 6th 2018 – we also encourage participants to stay on to participate in the Sunrise Swim for Healthcare on Saturday 7th July and volunteer for (or participate in) the 70.3 Ironman Muskoka which is being held on Sunday 8th July 2018.
