Dan Lieberman the “Barefoot Professor” coming to Australia

Dan Lieberman Barefoot ProfessorThe folks over at Barefootinc have organised another Running Efficiency Workshop and Q&A. We attended the last workshop with Barefoot Ted where we had a fun day and learned a great deal. This time it is with Dr Dan Lieberman aka the “Barefoot Professor” and is being held on Saturday 29th of October.

Dr Lieberman is Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University and leading researcher of running biomechanics. Lieberman’s research, published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature, has demonstrated that runners who run with a forefoot strike experience less force than those who run with a heel strike.
