Colin Papworth is the lead podiatrist at Accelerate Performance Centre. His areas of expertise include:

  • Podiatry
  • Prescribing orthoses
  • Running technique analysis
  • Running injury assessment and treatment

Colin qualified as a podiatrist in 1999 from Durham. After four years of working in the NHS in London as a lead muscular skeletal podiatrist he moved north to work in private practice. After a conversation with Stuart and Debs at an adventure race in the Peak District the idea for Accelerate Performance Centre was born, and the rest, as they say, is history!

When he isn’t fixing people’s feet Colin enjoys walking his dog in the peaks, mountain biking, making pizza, and even the occasional bit of running!
