The Biomechanics Lab at Leeds Met

The Biomechanics Lab at Leeds Met

Hey Runners,

We talk to many runners and running organisations around the world on a daily basis. We also have requests to help many running organistations. Some we can, some we just don’t have the resources….yet!

Steve Franklin is asking for volunteers for his research….and for this we can help…just by letting all you guys know about it. See below.

Help With Running Research

Here’s a message from Steve Franklin at Leeds Metropolitan University in England, who is looking for volunteers to help with research into running gait & hydration packs:

We are researching the effects of different designs of hydration pack (Inov-8 RacePac 4 & Inov-8 RacePro Extreme 4) on running mechanics and form.

All the research will take place at the Headingley Campus of Leeds Met Uni.

Participants must be running >25 miles a week.

Participants are required to attend the laboratories on 3 occasions with a minimum of 7 days between each visit.

Each participant will receive a free Inov-8 RacePac 4 & gait analysis in return for taking part.

Anyone who is interested in helping should contact:

This week’s running inspiration:

From the reigning master of distance running – a documentary about Haile Gebrselassie:
