Preparing Your Feet for the Melbourne Marathon Festival: How We Can Help in the Last 2 Weeks

With just two weeks left before the Melbourne Marathon Festival, the countdown to race day has begun. We understand the urgency of this final phase of preparation so in this blog post, we'll highlight the specific ways we can assist you in these critical two weeks leading up to the marathon.

  1. Last-Minute Foot Assessment: As you enter the home stretch of your marathon preparation, it's essential to have a quick but thorough foot assessment. Our experienced podiatrists can identify any potential issues that may have arisen during your training, ensuring your feet are in optimal condition for the big day.
  2. Shoe Analysis and Adjustments: If you've been experiencing discomfort or notice wear and tear on your running shoes, our podiatrists can analyse your footwear and recommend any necessary adjustments. We'll ensure your shoes provide the right support and comfort for the marathon.
  3. Custom Orthotics Express Service: For those in need of custom sports orthotics insoles or repairs, our express service is designed to provide you with a quick and effective solution. We can create custom orthotics tailored to your foot shape and running style in a shorter timeframe, ensuring you have them ready for the race.
  4. Last-Minute Foot Treatment: In the final two weeks, focusing on foot and ankle mobility is essential. Our clinic offers targeted mobilisation techniques and exercises that can improve flexibility and reduce the risk of injuries during the marathon.
  5. Nail Care and Quick Fixes: If you've encountered unexpected issues like ingrown toenails or minor blisters, our podiatrists can provide immediate care and advice on managing these concerns. We'll ensure your feet are as comfortable as possible for the run.
  6. Injury Prevention Strategies: With only two weeks remaining, it's vital to prioritise injury prevention. Our podiatrists can offer tailored guidance on how to minimise the risk of common running injuries and provide strategies to help you stay injury-free on race day.
