Melanie Pillaud was a very happy LGN Run Club member as her September 1km victory (11% improvement) not only put OMD International on LGN's winners podium for the first time, but because she had almost won before when alas her two results straddled our New Year December / January annual LGN 1km clean slate and so didn't count, we at LGN applaud Melanie's running tenacity to win a pair of new shoes.

As with all LGN monthly 1km winners Melanie was sent her LGN golden ticket invite to LGN's Willy Wonka-esc friends at Runners Need for video gait analysis and shoe prize prescription. However, due to illness it was a few extra weeks before Melanie could enjoy her prize presentation.
To begin the Runners Need staff assess Melanie in a pair of 'neutral' running shoes to help underdtand her biomechanis
Melanie then runs on the treadmill and has her running action assessed by video & Dartfish software
