Recover from the Laganside 10k with a Half Price (£10) Taster Session at Belfast’s Hydrorun Underwater Treadmill
Hydrorun, the underwater treadmill facility located in the Gasworks in Belfast, is offering runners pre-registered for the Purerunning Laganside 10k on 6 September a chance to schedule a half price (£10) taster session in the week following the popular race.
Taster sessions last 25 minutes. The underwater treadmill is situated in an endless pool, so runners can work against the resistance of the water, which can be adjusted according to the runner’s strength. It’s a great way to boost recovery in a low-impact environment, and has also been used by athletes recovering from injury and during pregnancy.
Kerry O’Flaherty, who won last year’s Laganside 10k and recently ran the qualifying time for the 2015 World Championships in Beijing and the 2016 Rio Olympics in the steeplechase, regularly uses Hydrorun. She said:
“I use Hydrorun to get the extra miles into my training with less impact. The steeplechase is very demanding on the body so it’s also great to have this facility to use to recover after races and tough track sessions.”
Runners registered for the Laganside 10k can avail of the offer by forwarding their email which confirms their registration for the race to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are 15 taster slots available in the week after the race and they will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don’t delay.
