University of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom
We are lecturers and practicing professionals in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Our undergraduate BSc/BA (Hons) Sports programmes are dynamic vocational degrees delivered with the physically active in mind, whether that is within the local community, the recreational or professional athlete. Our experience and expertise in professional sport and private industry allows the sports student to gain first hand and current knowledge in the field of sports medicine, exercise and training. We maintain strong links in industry, which provides our students opportunities for excellent work experience placements. Community events also allow students to voluntarily offer their skills to assist the competitor, which further strengthens the role and credibility that our sports students play within the health and exercise medicine spectrum. Our in-house Sports & Spinal Injuries Clinic and Athlete Development Centre also provide our means of actual practice and teaching where we welcome anyone wishing to have their injury managed, or fitness tested, advised and monitored to the highest standards using recent and researched methods to access our facility in Bolton One.

Megahike 2012

The Med Equip 4 kids charity held their annual charity Megahike at Hollingworth Lake Country Park this weekend.  Hikers trek a 50 mile route through the Lancashire hills starting and finishing at Littleborough Rugby Union Club.  Adam & Ivor Irwin provided the recovery massages for the tired and aching backs and legs from 9.30pm until 4.30am!  Yes, it was a late one! The winning team finished in around 17 hours.
