The human body is a miraculous machine that can take us to many places and enable us to do many things. If we’re tall, there are certain special considerations for taking the best possible care of our ‘machine’.

Physics dictates that taller runners suffer greater impact stresses on their lower limb joints as they run. Pounding pavements can take its toll on hip joints, knees and ankles. If trail running is your bag, a supportive, well fitting shoe becomes even more imperative. Pounding uneven, off road terrain can also contribute to joint stresses and strains.

Whether you’re training for a marathon, trail running or you simply enjoy a regular cardio fitness run in the park, it’s well worth taking care of your joints to keep you running well for decades to come.
