Runners, Your Shoes Make a Difference

They may not make you run faster or jump higher. Yet the material in the running shoe you wear does seem to make a difference. This study tested different shoes to shed some light on the mechanics of running.

When you run, your foot hits the ground with high impact. This study helps prove that the muscles of the leg adjust to this impact through a process called muscle tuning. Muscle tuning lessens the effects of impact on the tissues of the leg.

The midsole of running shoes also helps lessen the effects of impact. These researchers tested two different midsoles on six different runners. They found major differences in the muscle tuning between different shoes. And muscle tuning was significantly different between individual runners. Some runners did better with a hard midsole, while others benefitted from a softer one.

A better understanding of how our legs work when we run may help researchers find ways to treat or prevent conditions caused by the wear and tear of impact on the body. And who knows, maybe it will spur shoe companies to develop a "super shoe" that really makes us run faster.

Due to the great success of the 2010 Exeter Marathon and the coverage by the national media, we expect the race to grow. With this in mind, changes must be made for the 2011 event. These changes may include a new course, venue, and perhaps race name. However, the organizational principles will be the same. This is a qualifiers-only race. You must meet the qualifying standards in order to register. There were no exceptions in 2010 and there will be no exceptions in 2011.

The Cox Sports Marathon is a relatively flat, fast course and is considered one of the easier Boston Qualifiers. The Cox Sports Marathon and the Shape Up RI Half Marathon start and finish in Downtown Providence. Running downtown along the Providence River, the two races split at Mile 2 where the Cox Sports Marathon heads south towards Barrington along the scenic East Bay Bike Path. The Shape Up RI Half Marathon runs throughout the historic East Side of Providence and down and back the gorgeous tree-lined Blackstone Boulevard.
