We need you! The state of the art New Balance Sports Research Laboratory is about to start a large research study focused on transitioning from a heel strike landing pattern to a midfoot landing pattern while running. We are currently beginning to search for study participants. Study details: • This study will involve UP TO 11 trips to our research facility in Lawrence, Massachusetts. • The first visit will last approximately an hour/hour and a half. • The next trips will take less than 30 minutes each. • Finally, the last two trips will take about an hour each. • These visits will take place in just over 2 months. This is a really hot topic right now in the world of footwear and running biomechanics and we want to know more. If you are a heel striker (80% of runners are) and are interested in making a serious attempt at becoming a midfoot runner, this is your chance! If this is something you might be interested in, reply to this email and we can discuss further.
