The past two weekends, SV’s events team has attended two RunThrough events, one in the Olympic Park and the other at VeloPark. On 24 June, the RunThrough event at the Olympic Park featured a 5k and 10k race through the Olympic Park in Stratford. The route was a 5km loop, where the 10k runners took a second lap to complete their race. This event was partnered with the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. Their events team was there, cheering on every runner and even took part in the last 100m to encourage the final racer of the day to cross the finish line! On 1 July, RunThrough VeloPark featured 5 races altogether: 1 mile, 5k, 10k, 10 m and half marathon. There really was something for everyone! Each race took part on a 1-mile loop course creating a fun and encouraging atmosphere seeing the runners circle around each lap. Both events were fantastic. There was an enjoyable atmosphere with participants of all ages and abilities. SV Sports Therapy was on-site, providing pre- and post-race treatments. At both events we were faced with large queues as many runners were eager to take advantage of the free treatments.
The SV team was still treating until the entire RunThrough team had packed up all their equipment and were leaving the race site at both the Olympic Park and VeloPark events. We want to thank RunThrough for the fab events and we are looking forward to attending the next one!
