Using data to unlock faster and more efficient running

Run3D for Performance

The principal of marginal gains is based on making small incremental improvements, which result in significant advances when they are added together.

At Run3D, we have the advanced technology to critically evaluate all aspects of your running gait and musculoskeletal function with the same precision and rigour that is usually reserved for the sporting elite.

By identifying your unique biomechanical weaknesses, we can deliver data-driven recommendations to address them effectively and enhance your overall performance.

Experience the power of Run3D's advanced analysis to maximise your running potential.

How we help improve running performance

Data-Driven Insight

Using state-of-the-art technology, we precisely measure your 3D joint movement.

These data-driven insights empower us to identify and address any existing limitations.

By optimising your biomechanics, we aim to enhance your performance through more efficient running and by reducing your running injury risk.

Musculoskeletal Test

Using objective measurements, we assess your strength, flexibility, alignment, stability and function.

This comprehensive evaluation allows us to accurately identify any deficiencies or asymmetries in your musculoskeletal system and implement targeted  interventions to address them effectively, enabling you to function at your best.

Gait Retraining

Gait re-education is a key tool for enhancing running efficiency and minimising the risk of injuries.

With our real-time gait analysis, we can closely monitor the effectiveness of the retraining process and critically evaluate the outcomes of our recommendations.

This enables us to provide valuable insights and make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal results.

Monitor Progress

By using real data and measurable outcomes, we can continuously monitor the effectiveness of every aspect of our approach.

Our advanced platforms provide us with a fool-proof method of assessing your progress so that we can confidently track your advancements and make necessary adjustments to ensure that your goals are consistently met at every stage of the process.

Run3D Assessment Pathway

Reason for Visit

Your clinician will begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of your running goals and your performance history, which will include a discussion on any current and previous injuries.

Next, your clinician will attach 39 reflective markers to  your legs and shoes, carefully positioned on key anatomical landmarks.

Using cutting-edge technology identical to that used at elite sports performance centres, our 3D motion capture cameras record the positions of these markers 200 times a second.

This wealth of data allows us to precisely evaluate the movement patterns of your pelvis, hips, knees and ankles as you run. By analysing this information, we can pinpoint any irregular gait patterns, identify imbalances and uncover inefficiencies in your running form.

With our comprehensive analysis, we provide you with the tools to unlock your full running potential and optimise your performance like never before.

Gait Analysis

The process begins with a warm-up on the treadmill for as long as you require, and when you are ready we start collecting data.

Run3D's state-of-the-art motion capture technology allows us to capture real-time measurements of your movement patterns, providing us with immediate insights into your biomechanics. With Run3D, we can identify any asymmetries or irregularities in your gait that may impact your running performance or susceptibility to injury. These precise measurements reveal degrees of movement that are often imperceptible to the naked eye.

During the assessment, your clinician may capture tests at different running speeds or evaluate the effects of different footwear, tailoring the process to meet your specific requirements. If necessary, they may provide gait re-education to help address and improve any abnormal movement patterns identified.

Our approach is rooted in individualised care and your clinician will prioritise what is most appropriate for your unique case.

Musculoskeletal Testing

The next step involves a comprehensive set of objective clinical tests to precisely measure your strength, range of motion, alignment, and neuromuscular control.

These tests provide us with valuable data that further enhances our understanding of your biomechanics. By combining the results of these musculoskeletal tests with the detailed analysis of your gait, we gain thorough insight of how your body is moving and why it may be moving in this particular way.

The data we have collected serves as the foundation of your individualised recommendations program. We leverage these results to inform our decision making process, identifying specific areas that require attention and developing targeted strategies to enhance your biomechanical function.

With this integrated approach, we can optimise your performance by addressing any limitations, imbalances, or inefficiencies that may be hindering your running abilities.

Report Review

Our expert clinician will review your report with you, piecing together all the information to gain a comprehensive understanding of your body's mechanics and using the data to create an individualised plan based on your results.

Whether you're an elite athlete aiming for peak performance or someone seeking to improve your running gait, your clinician will use the results to provide you with individualised recommendations and strategies to address any imbalances or abnormalities and improve efficiency.

Our aim is to provide you with the necessary information and tools to optimise your movement. Through an individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, we strive to maximise your strengths, minimise weaknesses, and assist you in achieving peak performance in your running pursuits.


The outcomes of your assessment will serve as the foundation for a performance-optimised recommendations and rehabilitation program. This comprehensive plan will be driven by data and tailored to your specific needs. It may encompass various elements such as targeted strength and conditioning exercises, footwear or orthotic recommendations, or gait re-education.

Our primary objective is to assist you in achieving your performance goals effectively. By leveraging the expertise of our clinicians and combining it with the valuable insights obtained from your Run3D assessment, we can construct a comprehensive roadmap that guides your rehabilitation journey towards successful outcomes.

Your Run3D assessment marks the initial step in your path to optimised running. We encourage you to trust the process and together we will diligently work to unlock your full potential.

Case Study

This case study is an elite female athlete, 27 years of age, who faced persistent and recurring right-sided pain that hindered her ability to train at full capacity.

A Run3D assessment revealed that she exhibited a forefoot strike landing with no heel contact on the right side, resulting in elevated pelvic rotation and hip adduction. To address these issues, gait retraining and targeted rehabilitation were recommended.

Within one year of her Run3D assessment, she recorded a personal best time by 10 minutes in the marathon and represented Great Britain.

This inspiring outcome demonstrates the powerful impact of the gait retraining and targeted rehabilitation, which allowed the athlete to overcome her persistent pain, train at full capacity and reach her running potential.
