Imagine... being able to walk into a real clinic, start running, and have experts (running coaches, photographers, physical therapists, and foot doctors) at your disposal to give you an in-depth evaluation of your running style! Trouble with recurrent, bothersome injuries or just got hit with a new one? Just want to know how to run faster or in less pain? Then, step into the realm of the MCRRC's Stride Clinic. Want to know more? Read on!

You must be a MCRRC member to book a clinic appointment. If you are not a member, we welcome you to join. Please see About MCRRC and read on about membership information.
When you choose a Clinic date you will also be able to reserve an individual time slot on that date. Time slots start at 10:00 and are set 15 minutes apart (e.g. 10:00-10:15 am, 10:15-10:30 am, and so forth) with the last time slot from 12:15 to 12:30. You should plan to spend at least half-an-hour or longer at the Clinic. Thus, you can schedule an appointment in advance, knowing the exact time and date of your Clinic visit. It is easy to register for the Clinic, select the link below and it will take you to a secure server. Once there, be sure to follow all of the instructions to ensure your registration is confirmed.
Each Stride Clinic visit that you schedule through the Website will require a non-refundable payment of $30. This cost is still much less than you will pay anywhere else for a similar analysis and will help the club to recover part of the costs associated with providing this excellent service. For this small charge, you will be evaluated by an assortment of specialists, including a coach, physical therapist, podiatrist, nutritionist, and shoe expert and will receive a stylish Cool Max Stride Clinic shirt. If for some reason you need to change your confirmed appointment, you will be allowed to reschedule, but only if it is greater than five days before your scheduled date. This policy is described in detail at the online registration site; however, if you have any specific questions, please contact Carol Lavrich.
IMPORTANT: Please read all the instructions on the registration site carefully and made sure that you paid $30, otherwise you will not have a time slot reserved.
