Let me take you back to the title of this blog…Running Pains?

We would like to extend our services to more than just post-race massage, we are offering for the first time K taping to all participants of the New Forest Marathon, half marathon, 10K Race, and 5k race. This will take place pre-race and will focus on ITB, Knee, and Achilles taping to help alleviate any aches and pains and ensure you have the perfect race. Sport Tape X have been awesome in supplying us with tape for the event.

What the Professionals Say

“SPORTTAPE have helped me out massively over the last couple of months by supporting me and donating tape to help preparation for my major competitions and for the training in the build-up. I use SPORTTAPE to help me recover from competitions and hard training sessions, to prevent me from getting an injury, and I can honestly say it 100% works. I’ll keep on using for the rest of my life”

Cherie Pridham

“A big thank you to SPORTTAPE for supplying us with the best kinesiology tape around to keep the Team Raleigh GAC boys in top condition. Pro Cycling is a tough sport and SPORTTAPE Flex gives our riders the confidence that they can push their bodies when required. The best situation for the team is to have 100% good health, and to never need to apply the tape, but the reality is that SPORTTAPE is an essential product in our team carers arsenal; and even better that is comes in Team Raleigh GAC colours”
