Following on from the success of the recent adidas foot scan day at their Gordon Street branch in Glasgow, Greaves Sports, will be holding a similar event at their Sauchiehall Street store on Sunday, March 13. The team from adidas will be joined by one of the UK's leading running and biomechanics experts, Ben Barwick of Full Potential for the event and together they will be offering a full gait analysis. This will help you find the right running shoe for you.
The adidas coaching ambassadors will be available to answer questions on training ranging from marathon running to general jogging while the experts at Full Potential have a huge reputation for their extensive running knowledge. Together they will be offering SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE readers a free pressure pad foot scan service which is a great first step to working out the type of shoe that works for you.
For new runners this is a great opportunity to find out about their running gait; while for established runners it's a chance to discover if their previous assessments are holding up or whether there has been a change. Or you may find that a new model is a better match for you.
As the weather improves and thoughts turn to the Race for Life series, Glasgow Women's 10K, the Polaroid races, the Mens Health Forum 10K, the Scottish Kilomathon and the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, this is the ideal time for runners to reconsider their shoe type and get prepared for their spring training activity.
In addition visitors to the Greaves store can check out the latest spring apparel ranges and try out the jackets and t-shirts that will be keeping them running over the next few months.
Remember Sunday, March 13 is the big day at Greaves Sports - Sauchiehall Street.
