Running Evolution through Pregnancy (REP) project

As a free and easily accessible form of exercise, running is popular among the general population. We aim to understand how changes during pregnancy influence running gait and the loading experienced,  with the purpose of providing clear recommendations for engagement with running throughout and beyond pregnancy.

The results for the Running Evolution through Pregnancy Survey will be available on this page.

Participant recruitment - Running Evolution through Pregnancy (REP)

We aim to understand how changes during pregnancy influence running gait and the loading experienced,  with the purpose of providing clear recommendations for engagement with running throughout and beyond pregnancy.

We are currently recruiting wahine who have run for at least once per week for a minimum of 20 minutes before pregnancy.

Women will be invited to undertake motion analysis testing at monthly intervals at AUT Millennium.
