Nuffield Health becomes official health and wellbeing partner to Human Race

Leading not-for-profit healthcare organisation Nuffield Health, has announced today that it will be the official Health & Wellbeing Partner with Human Race for the next two years.

This is the first time that Nuffield Health has partnered with the mass participation events company and follows on from a successful partnership with the 2015 BNY Mellon Boat Race earlier on this year and the official partner of the Tour de France Fan Parks in 2014.

Human Race is the UK’s largest mass participation events company; owning and delivering over 50 events in triathlon, cycling, running and swimming; including the famous Dragon Ride, Windsor Triathlon and Cancer Research UK Winter Run Series. The events bring together an active community of people taking part in sporting events for reasons ranging from fitness, competition, charity, health, fun or to simply finish.

From the point of registration through to training and crucial post event recovery, Nuffield Health will share its vast knowledge with participants via its range of health and wellbeing experts such as personal trainers, physiotherapists, nutritionists and physiologists. Experts from Nuffield Health’s portfolio of 77 fitness and wellbeing gyms and 31 hospitals will also be present at key race day events, supporting not only participants but also those who come along to cheer on family and friends.

Dr Andrew Jones, Nuffield Health Managing Director for Wellbeing comments: “As an organisation dedicated to improving peoples’ health and wellbeing, we always want to encourage people to take part in sporting activities, no matter what their ability is. We are thrilled to be involved with Human Race and believe that we are the perfect partners to give expert advice on race preparation, training, recovery and injury prevention.”

In honour of the partnership, Nuffield Health will be title sponsors of two events in the Human Race calendar, Nuffield Health Eton SuperSprints and the Nuffield Health Kingston Run Challenge.

Sandy Case, New Business Director at Human Race, said: “Our participants take their health and fitness training seriously and due to the nature of their activities they often require physiotherapy services for the inevitable aches and pains that can crop up during training and competition. The support that can be offered in this area alongside the thirst for nutritional advice we know exists within our community meant Nuffield Health was an ideal partner for us and we are thrilled to be working together.”
