The 3rd International of Congress Medicine and Science in Ultra Endurance Sports will be held in Chamonix, France from the 21st-23rd August. This year’s event will run alongside the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, one of the most prestigious trail races in the world.
The goal of the congress is to raise public awareness for ultra-endurance sports. The three day event will include talks around medical research, effects of endurance on the human body and health issues relating to ultra endurance exercise.
It aims to train and inform healthcare professionals who are involved in the discipline on the latest research developments. It’s ideal for physiotherapists, doctors, chiropractors, coaches and specialists within the running industry.
Tickets for the event are still available to buy online.
Human Kinetics will have a stand in the main reception area, with a selection of books relating to endurance and sport science.
