This event is for women who love to run and are either in the perimenopausal, menopausal or post-menopausal stages of life. There is no fee to attend, we just ask that you donate an amount of your choosing to Women In Sport. You can do this by booking your ticket via Eventbrite.

Following on from part 1: we bring you three new clinical minds.

They will also answer the question on every woman's lips "Is it just a gradual deterioration from here on out or can I do something about it?"
