£10 minimum donation - 100% to the Rotary Club for the 3 local charities.
Q. What services do you offer runners on race day?
A. We offer pre and post treatment. This includes:
Sports Massage - pre event sports massage is a great way to benefit a runner’s warm up routine. Treatment is not too deep to ensure the muscles are ready to run a half marathon.
Post event sports massage can really aid recovery, especially for those runners who are not great with stretching and their recovery routine (we all know 1 of these runners don’t we!)
Sports taping - We use Kinesio taping which is a hypoallergenic stretchy tape to help improve blood circulation to a particular muscle/joint. Blood is everything. If we do not have an optimum blood circulation to our limbs during a race, we are at risk of an injury. But don’t neglect your warm up and simply opt for the ‘Mummy look’ covered in tape!
Sports injury assessment and treatment - If you have sustained an injury during the race, we can assess this short term for you and offer you some immediate advice. Ultimately do not leave the injury unassessed for too long. Pop to your local sports injury clinic (us!) the week after the race and let’s get this injury dealt with asap. We know many of you will have a calendar full of races and events for 2022, thus optimum recovery and minimal ‘guess work’ is key.
