Chris and the team visited Profeet
This will be Chris Evans’ first half marathon, so as part of his preparations he recently visited the Profeet Run Lab for a full run assessment and new running shoes.

Chris was looked after by our Run Manager and was fitted with some neutral Asics running shoes. Richard also made custom insoles for his existing Nike shoes.
