There have been two notable recent online developments for running enthusiasts in Scotland, with both Achilles Heel Injury Clinic and Canicross Scotland announcing new websites.

Achilles Heel Injury Clinic, the partner operation of the Glasgow-based retailer Achilles Heel, has launched a new site to promote their sports injury and physiotherapy service. However the site also allows athletes to research a wide variety of injuries, while gaining information on the various physiotherapy treatments the clinic can offer.

The website identifies the injuries that athletes suffer most frequently. In addition, it offers advice on both the nutritional and psychological aspects of physical activity. The clinic, which is run by three qualified physiotherapists, is located close to the Achilles Heel store on Great Western Road, Glasgow.

For more information visit the Achilles Heel Injury Clinic website.

Meanwhile, Canicross Scotland has announced the launch of their new website. The site contains news of weekly group runs, special training sessions and discussion groups for its members.

Canicross involves racing alongside your pet dog and is relatively new to the running scene, with the first world championships taking place in 2002. Canicross holds weekly training runs and informal races at Eglinton Country Park, Irvine. The next Canicross event scheduled is a Doggy Fun Day on Sunday, August 14, at the Veterinary Physiotherapy Centre near Dunlop.
