The Running Show has announced its exhibitor line-up for the 24 – 25 November event at Sandown Park.
The show caters for all runners and enthusiasts, from the casual beginner through to the veteran marathon runner. Among the exhibitors to this year’s Running Show is Physio4Life who will be operating a Sports Injuries Clinic. Physio4Life’s specialists – including those that worked with our Olympians – will be on hand to provide sports massage, physio and biomechanics analysis. Physio4Life will also be offering Sweat Testing, providing a highly accurate reading of the level of sodium lost during exercise. Sodium is the main electrolyte lost in sweat and every individual has different levels of loss that remain relatively consistent throughout a lifetime. The results of the Sweat Test allows the runner to find the best hydration strategy, enabling the replacement of lost sodium and preventing underperformance and cramping.
Sub-4 Biomechanics will also be at the Running Show and will have their team of highly trained podiatrists and physiotherapists to offer free assessments to establish any biomechanical weaknesses in posture, offering solutions to sports injuries through bespoke sports orthotics.
The Running School will be launching its new Marathon Package at the show. The package will include technique coaching, strength, discounted treatments and a personalised training programme to help runners achieve their marathon goals.
The world-renowned Surrey Human Performance Institute is taking bookings for its Advice Clinic, offering a range of sessions, from maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Anaerobic Threshold testing; the ‘gold standard’ of fitness tests. It is also offering sessions on body composition strength and conditioning, yoga and nutrition. You can also get advice from the experts in sports rehabilitation and run coaching.
