Running behaviour of people Come and join us!

More and more runners use wearables, apps and other technology to improve their performance or the overall running experience. The impact and effect of the technology on the runners behaviour is huge but the behaviour of the runner itself is a key-driver for many things, especially for reducing the injury risk. This Running 20/20 Meetup will discuss the topic Running Behaviour, with contributions from three speakers, sharing their vision or personal story, either from the science, running or start-up community’. 

This session aims to connect people from engineering, design, psychology and sports science, in order to co-create new products and services that reinforce good running behaviour and enable a great running experience.
