Picking the right running shoe for you

Have you taken the decision to join us in our five week plan designed to help you run 5K? Was the last time you exercised a sprint to catch the bus or climbing the stairs when a lift was out of service? And do you have five hundred pairs of shoes to cover every occasion but not a single pair of running shoes?

If you're in the market for a new pair of trainers, it's important you're aware of how the sole of your foot is structured to maximise performance and minimise injury.

Just follow the simple water test to give yourself an idea of how your foot arches before setting off to pick up your new sneakers!
