The Running Laboratory is a collaborative effort among Jacksonville University Kinesiology, 1st Place Sports, and JTC Running.
Our three primary missions are:
1) offer state-of-the-art scientific running assessments (biomechanics and metabolic) to the Jacksonville running community for a great price (less than a pair of running shoes!)
2) conduct scientific running research to help advance the world’s understanding of injuries, performance, and health
3) use the Running Laboratory as a platform to educate, train, and fund students
Please visit our 1st Place Sports Running Laboratory website for a detailed description of the biomechanical assessments, metabolic assessments, personnel, and the assessment process:. 1stplacesports.com/runninglab/
