I have always found that the footwear and insoles I use have a big influence in whether I feel pain or not during games and training.”
Charlie Harpur is an incredible ultra-runner who has actually been a Profeet customer for a few years before he decided to taking his running more seriously and compete at a high level. He boasts some impressive times for the marathon 2:33:26 and 100 miles in 15:01:53 both achieved in 2018. This year so far, he won the Gloucester 50km back in January, with the incredible time of 2:59:59. This puts Charlie 12th on the all-time British rankings for the distance. Due to this and his awesome career so far, he has also been selected to represent England at the 100km Anglo Celtic Plate in March of this year.
Being someone who already uses our insoles Charlie states how:
“I was sent to Profeet after my osteopath Pierre Meslet told me to see what was going on with my gait. I had posterior tibialis issues and the insoles helped me massively. They have done over 1600 miles and have been brilliant. Being a Profeet ambassador means so much to me.”
Catherine Ledesma is a field hockey player and is currently part of the GB development squad. Last year she played in the four nations tournament in China where she represented GB u23’s. As well as this Catherine also is part the England U21 squad, who will be taking part in the European Championship tournament in Valencia in Summer 2019.
In June 2018, Catherine underwent surgery to help alleviate compartment syndrome, which had troubled her for several years. The operation has helped a lot and she is now back playing fully.
“I have always found that the footwear and insoles I use have a big influence in whether I feel pain or not during games and training.”
Over the next year Catherine has lots of matches however the most notable are playing Canada next week for GB and hope to play Germany, Holland and several other European countries over the next few months. Then later in the year, the European Championships as part of Team GB in July in Valencia.
