Running Assessments Outdoors!

Keen to take a friendly, professional look at your running? Let’s meet in the great outdoors.

Lockdown has seen plenty of people running and now the weather is lovely too. Bend + Mend now offers our Running Assessment service outdoors.

This is for you if you want to:

  • Improve your running performance
  • Feel confident, especially if you’re new to running
  • Or get back into running after an injury or a break

If you’ve never had your running filmed and analysed, it can be a really valuable form of feedback. The 45 minute session will cover your running and injury history, video analysis of your running and selected biomechanical tests. Your Physiotherapist will then put all that together to give you expert advice on your technique, training and footwear.

Bend + Mend has many years of experience with this process. This has mostly been indoors with a treadmill for convenience, but we’ve tried them outdoors during lockdown and it’s been a real success. Outdoor running allows the most natural form and being in the park means your Physio can run with you and try different technique cues in real time.

Contact us today to book a session. We’ll arrange to meet up at your chosen park or running path. Hyde Park is great, but we’ll do our best to accommodate anywhere up to a 5km run from Town Hall.
