Join us for a very special event with running buggies. You will learn all about the different types of buggies specifically designed for running . Followed by a mini stretch workshop with Ros, so you’ll be ready to hit the ground running when teamed up with your perfect buggy.
The 60 min session will be divided into the following;
15 mins - Intro who we are (work, home and with Buggy Squad)
20 mins Wendy - What makes a running buggy suitable for running with (Suspension, large wheels, safety harness etc) plus difference types, (de-bunking the myth that if its called Sport or Jogger it's suitable) plus some top tips
15 mins Ros - Stretches suitable for warm up and cool down while buggy running (all can participate if wanted)
Working with people to achieve their goals is something Ros is very lucky to do everyday in her career as a physiotherapist which has taken her from working the trauma wards and rehabilitation gyms of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham to the English Institute of Sport as Lead physio for England Netball for 5 years and now in her current role as Senior Physiotherapist in Multisport based at the Institute of Sport and Exercise Health in London. Along this journey there has been lots of travel home and abroad to different competitions, World Cups and Commonwealth Games, a MSc completed, research papers published and a few 70:3 triathlons completed.
This year Ros also was fortunate to take on a new life long job role as a Mum and this has brought about a new appreciation for sleep, coffee and her running buggy! Wanting to make the most of maternity leave, get back into shape and meet other active mums, Ros linked up with Wendy to set up Buggy Squad. Ros has always been active and she takes inspiration from those around her be that Olympians or those starting out on their running journeys.
Back in 2015 a British runner and mum of two young children launched the UK’s first ever specialist retail website dedicated solely to buggies for running – aptly named ‘RunningBuggies.Com’. Wendy Rumble is on a mission to increase the awareness of running buggies in the UK so more parents can find their freedom to exercise when they do not have childcare. Her unique business model provides 121 advice on the best buggy for the individual based on her experience running with her children in them. Her mission has taken her to the House of Parliament to meet the UK minister for Sport and the Prime Minister to discuss this topic in 2016. She often writes blogs and articles published in running publications and in running forums. This year she completed the New Forest marathon and Bournemouth Marathon in the space of 4 weeks.
