The Underwater Run to London site was launched to highlight the running journeys of elite distance Coach Alberto Salazar and his Oregon Project Runners, including Galen Rupp and Mo Farah. These London hopefuls are passionate believers and users of HydroWorx pools and underwater treadmills and are changing the way elite runners are training through the use of underwater treadmill technology.

Salazar and the Oregon Project runners rely on water workouts to:

  •     Safely keep training to prevent de-conditioning if injured
  •     Increase weekly mileage for important competitions without increasing the risk of injury
  •     Create a constant state of active recovery using water’s unique healing properties during runs
