With just a few months to go until the ABP Southampton Marathon, Southampton Solent University and Nuffield Health are delighted to offer participants and partners the opportunity to hear from industry experts who will share their top tips on how to boost and sustain your performance.
From how to reduce the risk of injury, to looking at what constitutes a good diet, our guest speakers will cover a variety of topics including:
- Distance running - injuries and prevention, by Dr Mike Rossiter, Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine, Nuffield Health.
- When should you see a podiatrist, by Melanie Healey, Consultant at Nuffield Health.
- Efficient and effective movement, and how dysfunction and/or asymmetries in the body can cause problems for runners, by Martin Skivington, Head of Health and Exercise Science at Southampton Solent University.
Light refreshments will be served during the evening and you will also have the chance to meet with other marathon participants. A variety of local organisations will be on hand showcasing support services and clubs that can help support you in preparing for the marathon. We will also be offering guests the chance to tour Southampton Solent University’s newly improved health and fitness studios.
Talks by our guest speakers will start promptly at 6pm. If you are unable to make it for this start time you can still meet with the experts by attending our post event drop in session which starts at 7.30pm.
