What is the Running Foundation?
The Running Foundation is a service aimed specifically at runners who want more: more comfort, more speed, more miles, more fun.
We believe that a strong foundation and goal setting are the keys to your success, whatever that may be. To some it is shaving seconds of their PB, to others it may be to run 3 miles 2 or 3 times a week, without the niggling discomforts that have held you back for too long. We aim to help all runners of all abilities.
We have assembled a team of dedicated sports and healthcare professionals to enable you to do the thing that you love. We want you to be better, faster, more comfortable, and more informed. We will keep you updated on the latest cutting edge information regarding injury prevention, recovery, footwear choice, and technique advice. We believe that these ingredients will enable you to run confident in the knowledge that you couldn’t be better prepared.
Whilst the information that we provide is aimed at keeping you running injury and niggle free, occasionally you will fall of the rails. If you are injured or need bespoke and tailored advice we are here to help. We aim to help you recover in as short a time as possible, or give the advice you require to be at your best for your next event.
