Join this great opportunity to learn more about proper biomechanics and form in regards to your running. Come join us for a FREE natural form running clinic!
Natural running starts with good posture, an athletic position and continues with an efficient cadence of 170 to 190 steps/minute. Done properly, running feels easier and your feet seem at one with the ground. You are making better use of the proper running muscles and the elastic component of running. The end result is a run that feels more efficient, intuitive, relaxed, natural and less stressful.
Newton Running representative, Tom Darragh, will be joining us at the store leading the clinic, giving a presentation and directing form drills on
