Are you a runner, whether it be one a week or for comnpetition?

If so we would love to hear form you! Over the next three weeks, we will be conducting a footwear trial to look at the comfort of three commercially available running shoes. We are looking for 100 volunteers to participate in the study.

Participation will require you to run a 1.1km loop in each of three shoes in random order. This will be based from a health clinic in Rose Park on Kensington Road (Leading Edge Physical Therapy – 76a Kensington Road). After running in each of the shoes, you will be asked to assess the comfort of each of the shoes after you have run in them. Total testing lasts about 60min by the time you have been fitted for the shoes, completed each run and filled out the assessment. As a token of appreciation for completing the study, you will be offered a 20% discount voucher for a pair of shoes from the ASICS website. A more detailed information sheet for participants is attached below.

 

At present, we have the following testing sessions available for participation:

  • Thursday 8th December at 8:00am, 
  • Tuesday 13th  December at 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am, 1:00pm, 2:30 pm, 4:00 pm, 5:30 pm or 7:00 pm
