Jimmy Hall, Putney manager, puts Nurvv run smart insoles to the test

The Nurvv run smart insoles are a top of the range insole which are placed beneath the footbed of your running  shoes  and give feedback on how you are running, how to reduce injury risk, and how to improve technique.

Richmond Runfest’s socially distanced 10k on September 12th & 13th is hailed as a superbly organised success. Here's Jimmy's story of his run.

Fauja Singh, 107, of London, took up running aged 89 and earned a place in the record books as the first centenarian and oldest person to ever complete a marathon. He ran the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in eight hours, 25 minutes and 16 seconds. Aged 100 he also set eight world age records including running the 5K in 49:57.39.
