As running is a sport rapidly evolving these days, a vast number of runner are asking themselves many questions on their practice, some of which are left unanswered. The conference given by Jean-François Harvey, author of the best seller Run Better, addresses many subjects still unexplored, yet essential, based on innovating concepts. Information on the proper mechanic of running (footstrike, cadence, posture…), discussion on the role of proper shoe choice (minimalists, maximalists, mediumalists…), key knowledge on how to treat and prevent running injuries and more, are important subjects covered in the conference to help people understand running in order to be able to enjoy running better.
