Founders of NYC Barefoot Runners, John and Maggie Durant, have turned their fun run and cabaret of barefoot running education into an annual event – doubling in size from the 1st Annual NYC Barefoot Run. Their ultimate goal was to bring together all of the “who’s who” in barefoot running and create a celebratory atmosphere full of education; with all ideas welcomed to allow participants to test each theory for themselves. We couldn’t resist getting involved for the second year in a row so we brought our team, including our newly certified Barefoot Coaches and barefoot running expert Lee Saxby. Read more…
Lee Saxby’s recent trip to New York wasn’t simply to run around Battery Park for the NYC Barefoot Run with no shoes on. He had work to do – Here is our barefoot running expert from the VIVOBAREFOOT Training Clinic talking to Will Sanchez from Gotta Run
You can now sign up for our week-long intensive Training Clinic Coaching Program to become a barefoot running coach.
It is a well-known fact that 80% of runners are injured every year. This coaching program aims to spread injury-free running by diagnosing and correcting running form.
There are only a couple of spaces left in October’s course (based in London) so register now before it’s too late.
Led by leading biomechanics expert, Lee Saxby, the Training Clinic Coaching Program will train you how to teach the skill of barefoot running, expand your knowledge of evolutionary biomechanics, fully explain the importance of proprioception and give you the opportunity to become a VIVOBAREFOOT Certified Coach.
All certificates are signed by Daniel Lieberman – Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University.
