All ages and abilities enjoyed the event, whether they ran, jogged, walked or a bit of each! The organisers and volunteers have done a fantastic job and we wish them all the best for the future, long may it continue!

Guy was asked to work at the Exmoor IronMan again this year, obviously he said yes to such a great event! Its the first ironman event of the season to kick off the triathlon races. The weather wasn’t great, just as gruelling as the race itself. About 1200 competitors entered the race, putting themselves through a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile cycle and a 13.1 mile run! Guy and his team were very busy at the finish line massage tent, sending people away feeling a bit better before the DOMS kicked in too much!
Guy, Scott and Gary have attended the Elite Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Expo in London excel today, the biggest event of its kind in Europe attracting all the top, latest equipment. We saw lots of top end treatments available and new innovations coming into sports science. The Light Pod that Guy was invited to trial last year won innovation of the year at the event, being purchased by Nike to use on all of their sponsored athletes at this years olympics. This is the same system as we use just on a much larger full body scale.
After Guy was selected to treat athletes at the London Marathon this year, Scott was also able to join in the fun. A great day seeing lots of athletes and competitors at all levels enjoying the atmosphere and scenery of the iconic race. We were lucky enough to see some of our own local patients making their way around the course and raised a good sum of money for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
A big thanks to the team of therapists that helped with this years event. Between us we completed 102 massages raising just over £500 for Devon Air Ambulance. The weather was perfect all day, plenty of sunshine but not too hot for the runners! As usual a great atmosphere and we look forward to supporting the event again next year.
