DAVE’S GOOD FORM RUNNING

Developed by Curt Munson, John Benedict and 2014 Olympic runner Grant Robison, Good Form Running is a running technique focused on simplicity to help you get faster, go farther and feel better while reducing the risk of injury. You’ll learn the four basics of Good Form Running: posture, foot strike, cadence and lean — plus practical drills to help you perfect your own form. It’s the final product from years of teaching clinics, education, philosophies and trial and error.
