Participants Needed for Running Study

Hello, I am currently recruiting participants for one of my PhD projects.
If you volunteer to participate you will be required to sprint maximally on a treadmill for a maximum of 20 steps at different gradients: Level, inclined at 6 degrees and declined at 6 degrees. There will be a total of 3 laboratory visits: 1x Familiarisation, 1x Level and Inclined trials, and 1x Level and Declined trials. The order of the final 2 visits will be randomised between participants. I am looking to recruit both males and females.

To be eligible to take part you must be:
• 18-40 years of age
• A sprinter or perform some form of sprinting as part of your sport
• A recreationally or competitively active
• Free from any lower-body musculoskeletal injury for the past 3 months

If you participate you will have the opportunity to receive detailed biomechanical data on your sprint running gait which could advise your training to optimise performance.
If you are interested or require any additional information, please feel free to contact me anytime using my email
