The Science of Running

Event Details

Discover the science of running with ultramarathon runner Keith Whyte who has won races such as a 100km race in -30c Antarctic! Running is a sport practiced by so many every day. Whether it’s a 5km run after work or that final long weekend run before a marathon, running is good for not only the body, but also for the mind. In this event you’ll learn about the science of running; both the physical response to running and how are muscles use energy, as well as the best way to train, and how running can help with mental resilience.

And we’re looking for your running data as part of a citizen science running experiment! Taking you on this journey will be avid hobbyist runner Barry Fitzgerald and the Irish record holder for the 100 km ultramarathon Keith Whyte. Lace up your shoes, and get your favourite exercise tunes ready. Because it’s time to start running!

This event is part of national Science Week, supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
