Aspire to Run


RunPerform is an evidence based screening programme designed to assess a runner’s risk of developing common running injuries such as runner’s knee and shin splints. The programme aims to minimise the risk of injury by designing you a personalised injury prevention programme. We understand that you have clocked up some miles so RunPerform will be based around your training schedule, which will improve your performance whilst it prevents injury.

You can expect an initial hour-long session that allows us to go through the tests in order to get an accurate analysis of your biomechanics and techniques. After this we will collect your data and create a specific programme based on your needs. We will then monitor your progress with scheduled assessments so we can keep the programme up to date as you change during training.

For more information call us on 01285 654059 and book your initial assessment with one of our physiotherapists.

Our Client James Fenton conquered the Double Marathon​

Race to the Tower, to raise funds for the Cobalt Charity.

Our client James Fenton recently took on the Double Marathon - Race to the Tower - in the Cotswolds to raise money for the Cobalt Charity, one of the leading medical imaging and diagnostic centres who specialise in Cancer and Dementia.

The run is a 52.4-mile double marathon through the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds. Unrelentingly beautiful. Unforgettably challenging!

We caught up with James at the Clinic to find out how he got on...

As James mentioned in the video he has managed to raise more than double his target, hitting over £1500 for the Cobalt Charity, which is incredible and all of us at the Markland Clinic just want to say well done again!

His Just Giving page is still open if you would like to donate to this great cause. Click here:

This race was part of the award-winning Threshold Trail Series.

Cobalt is a medical charity helping people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions. They believe everyone should have access to the best medical imaging for their diagnosis. They invest in equipment, research and education. Each year they provide diagnostic imaging for over 65,000 patients at Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham, the ITM Imaging Centre in Birmingham and with a fleet of six mobile MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanners that travel throughout the UK.   As well as cancer, the equipment is able to assist in the detection of illnesses such as dementia including Alzheimer’s.  They offer free training and education courses on a local, national and international basis for doctors and healthcare professionals, ensuring their experience and research work is widely shared.  

Donations received help fund scanning and diagnosis, research, prevention, specialised nursing posts and cancer facilities for local people.  

The charity is close to James' heart as his wife went through breast cancer and the charity was an amazing source of help and support. Here's our previous interview with James...
