How to run better? Where you make initial ground-contact on your foot during running has big implications to injury and performance. It turns out that making initial ground-contact under the 5th toe may be an all around safer, more functional landing strategy of the foot than striking big-toe-first, or heel-first in running. Read more here about the proven advantages and mechanical relevance of making initial ground-contact on the outside of the forefoot during running.
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
