A faster cadence is a natural by-product of forefoot running that also reduces ground-contact time and therefore, increases flight time of the feet which may leave less time for abnormal foot pronation, such as foot overpronation to take hold. This is how forefoot running may do more to open the doors of injury prevention progress. Read more here about why forefoot running may do a better job at preventing foot overpronation as compared with heel strike 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.
