Sponsoring an athlete

Glasgow Osteopath is really happy to announce that we are now sponsoring* one of Scotland’s top Ultra-runners – Paul Giblin (twitter @pyllon)

Paul trusted me to treat him over his first season of Ultra events including the 96 mile West Highland Way Race and his results speak for themself. Paul completed 7 Ultra marathons in 2011, and finished 3rd overall in the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series. Highlights include a win at the 55 mile Cateran Ultra and a top 5 finish at the infamous West Highland Way race.

Paul’s training and competition schedule is gruelling and my treatment is tailored to meet the demands of a packed 9-month plan. This involves race preparation treatments, techniques to speed up recovery, general maintenance and dealing with issues as they arise – such as ‘emergency’ muscle treatment that on one occasion would have meant he couldn’t compete.

If Paul trusts me to maintain his body throughout the season it means he can focus on training and racing – helping him achieve his ambitions for the year. No matter what the distance, from 5K to marathon (and beyond), I believe I can help to keep you training so that you get the most out of your running.

If you’d like to know more about how I could support your training plan send me an email Osteopath Glasgow or call me to discuss – I love to talk running!

We’ll keep you updated on Paul’s progress through the year including links to his ultra-running blog.
