Barefoot 5k AwardsThe Natural Running Symposium took place in October of 2010 at the Maine Running Company. Danny Abshire from Newton Running, Kirsten Buchanan from Impact Sports Medicine and Jamie Raymond from Raymond Chiropractic joined John Rogers to talk about barefoot and natural running in front of a crowd of about 60 people.

Each speaker had their own take on what natural running means and why it is good for us, as well as when it isn’t.

This is part 8 of the presentation, which covers the last 3 minutes before the question and answer session. This also concludes the discussion on the evolution of running shoes and where the industry is going by sharing John Rogers’ opinion on where he’s seen the industry move and why it’s important for the staff at running stores to educate the consumer on how to safely adapt to using the natural and minimal shoes that are now for sale.
