Volunteer runners of all levels in Luxembourg are being sought to take part in a ground-breaking new study.
Over a six-month period, the Luxembourg Institute of Health study will look at how the shoes and their cushioning impacts an individual’s running and risk of injury.
In total, 800 runners are required for the study. All interested participants should be in good health and run at least once a week.
Those selected will be issued with a pair of running shoes, free of charge. They are asked to wear the shoes on all running sessions over six months and keep a record of their use and observations regarding performance and/or pain on an online platform created for the study.
The study is believed to be the first of its kind in the world.
