Barefoot Runners Wanted for Barefoot Running Study in Calgary, Canada
THE EFFECT OF HABITUAL BAREFOOT RUNNING ON THREE DIMENSIONAL BIOMECHANICS AND OTHER PREDICTORS OF CHRONIC INJURY IN ENDURANCE RUNNING.
We are looking for barefoot runners who are/have: 1) running barefoot or in a modified barefoot shoe at least 20km per week 2) free of orthopedic injury for at least 1 year 3) not experienced a foot-related injury requiring surgery in the past year 4) aged 18-55 5) In the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area.
The study will involve an hour of the participants’ time. They will come to the Running Injury Clinic and run on the treadmill for a few minutes so we can measure the forces and angles of their joints. Then we will do a few measurements of their flexibility. The only way people from outside Calgary could participate is if they were willing to travel here for the testing.
