To Run or not To Run?

Barefoot running is the future - and the past!

As humans we are designed to run, yet 80% of runners are regularly injured and many more dread the thought of 'running'.

How can that be if we were 'Born to Run'?

Pretty simple really. Running is a skill and thanks to the proliferation of cushioned running shoes we have forgotten how to run correctly.

So whether you want to run totally barefoot or in barefoot shoes, the first step is to re-learn the techniques that we took for granted as children. Then enjoy a lifetime of efficient and injury free running!
