Running Mat At Mercy Of Dragons

The Running Mat

One of the latest products on the running market - The Running Mat - will hope to withstand the intimidating scrutiny of Duncan Bannatyne and co when it is launched on Dragons' Den tomorrow (Sunday 18 August).

Described as a portable exercise mat, it fastens around the waist and enables the user to exercise and run without any obstruction. Once opened out, the mat allows for cushioned exercise to protect joints and clothing, and is fully waterproof to ensure you stay dry throughout.

As such, the product is seen as the ideal way to incorporate outdoor activities into your run and is targeted at those who may be working with a personal trainer or taking part in boot camp.

The Running Mat has been designed up Donna Kerr-Foley, a boot camp instructor who realised she needed some kind of versatile mat whilst training clients.

If you are interested to see how the Dragons react to Donna's Running Mat, tune in to BBC2 this Sunday, 8pm. More information on the product, including pricing, is available here.
