It’s amazing what a year can do. At the end of 2015, our team at Physio Room decided to create OWN THE RUN: A performance screen and program curated specifically for the running community in Vancouver. It was a way for our team to have a creative outlet and give back to the community we love. It was meant to be a fun learning experience for our team of Physiotherapists and everyone that signed up. We set our sights on preventing injuries, promoting efficient running mechanics, and helping everyone perform at their very best. The idea was for all the participants to not only reach, but crush their goals. This we achieved and more. What we didn’t expect was the incredible opportunities and relationships it has helped to create. The love and support in the run community is special to Vancouver, and honestly much more than we ever imagined.
Fast forward one year. A few weeks ago, we sent out a feedback survey to everyone who signed up last year. We also hosted a small focus group with the run community to discuss some of the details of the project, and some cool ideas for the future. We got together with our team of Physiotherapists and put in the work to formulate the specifics of our program. We asked, we listened, and trust me when I tell you we’ve done our homework. We will be bringing you the best and most complete look at running from a prehab and rehab perspective. And guess what? That’s not all…
We are super excited to announce that OWN THE RUN 2017 will be a partnership between Physio Room & Vancouver Running Company. Having the full support of a community partner that we have always admired is truly humbling. With a stylish design and clean aesthetic, Vancouver Running Company has always stayed true to their vision of bringing runners together in the city. We simply love it. And with their full support, we are able to give you a much more comprehensive experience this year!
In addition to our improved screen and program, you will have access to community runs, group classes, a speaker series full of run-specific education, a post-race massage (obviously), and a 15% discount off apparel and footwear from Vancouver Running Company. And just to make things a little bit more awesome, you will also receive an exclusive Adidas technical running shirt and a Ciele running cap.
Sign-up begins now for 2017. Call Physioroom at 604 558 3322 or 778 379 7950 to reserve a spot. Space will be limited.
OWN THE RUN FAQQ: Is the package covered by my extended health insurance?A: Yes! The screening assessment, exercise program development, and group classes will all be with a licensed Physiotherapist at Physio Room. As a result, most of the package will be covered under Physiotherapy. Each session you complete with your Physiotherapist, you will be provided a receipt for reimbursement.Q: What is the Flight Crew Speaker Series?A: The FC Premier Speaker Series is a monthly education series that is held at Vancouver Running Company for Flight Crew Premier Members ($60 value). The Flight Crew is a running group that began with the company in 2015. Each month, a speaker is invited to give a talk on different topics, providing everyone a comprehensive look at running from varying perspectives. Physio Room will of course be contributing to the series as well.Q: How will community runs and group classes be incorporated?A: Once a month, one of our Physiotherapists will be taking a group of OTR participants on a short community run, followed by a running specific class at Physio Room. As a participant in our OWN THE RUN program, you will have access to 2 group classes. In addition, you are also always welcome to join the VRC Flight Crew on their weekly social runs on Thursday nights at the Vancouver Running Company shop location.Q: How do I sign up?A: You can book online on the Physio Room Booking Site starting in January 2017.
