Saucony Invites You to ’Step Into Minimalism!’

When: Thursday, April 14th, 6-8pm Where: The Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St., Boston

For certain, thousands of runners in this year’s Boston Marathon will be running in minimalist footwear and a few will be barefoot altogether. Without a doubt the minimalist trend has stirred quite a fascination and wide debate among runners everywhere. But is it for YOU?

Join Saucony and an all-star panel of experts, including Dr. Jack Daniels, "world’s greatest coach," as they share their insights and advice on how runners everywhere can integrate minimalist running into their training program−safely and responsibly.

In addition, Michael Sandler, author of the bestselling Barefoot Running, will share how running shoeless saved his health after a life-altering accident. Dr. Marybeth Crane, one of the country’s most influential sports podiatrists, will discuss the benefits of stronger feet for stronger running. Spencer White, head of Saucony’s Human Performance & Innovation Lab will give a live demonstration highlighting the differences in muscle activation in runners when wearing minimalist versus traditional running shoes.

Saucony’s award-winning collection of minimalist footwear will be available for try-on, including the new Kinvara 2. Coaches and treadmills on hand to experience natural running technique.

Hors d’œuvres, Vita Coco coconut water, and beer/wine will be served.
