As part of the research, they are looking to recruit 270 participants aged between 18-60 years old. No specific shoe sizes are required for this study.
The criteria for participants is as follows:
You must be a regular runner, covering a distance of between 15-30km per week, using the same running shoes
You must be willing to participate in the study over a 12-month period
The one-year study, which is due to start in November 2021, involves participants running in the shoes allocated and then filling out a short survey of around 6-10 questions after each run.
The questions will be about your current running load, performance, running style, brand preference and injury history (both running and non-running related).
As a thank you for taking part in the study, participants will receive two pairs of shoes at the beginning of the study as well as a £150 voucher for a running shoe company upon completion.
