Event description

Description

In autumn 2018 we launched the #TRAINBRAVE campaign to raise awareness of RED-S and eating disorders in sport. You can find out more about the event here.

We have since launched a series of #TRAINBRAVE events across the UK, and next up is Bath.

#TRAINBRAVE Bath

At this completely free event you will hear stories from athletes, coaches and clinicians on their experiences with RED-s and eating disorders within endurance sports at all levels, from youth to recreational to elite.

Speakers:

Renee McGregor - Sports and eating disorder specialist dietitian

Dr Nicky Keay - Sports endocrinologist, BASEM

We will also discuss what challenges endurance sports face, why prevalence is so high, and the focus will be on creating a discussion to understand:

  • What are the main causes/pressures that lead athletes developing RED-S?

  • What are some of the warning signs and symptoms of RED-S?

  • What are some of the barriers that stop athletes seeking help?

  • What steps can athletes take to ensure they are not overtraining and under-fuelling?

  • What support can be provided by coaches, clubs and health professionals to reduce the prevalence of RED-S?

Due to the limited number of tickets available, if you are unable to attend, please do cancel your order to allow others to book.
