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.

The start and finish are at Sparks Elementary School, and the first and last few miles of the race are on rural paved roads. A few hills occur on the paved roads that begin and end the course, but most of the race is on the flat stretches of the NCR Trail. The trail surface is a compacted combination of dirt and fine stone. The trail winds along the Gunpowder River, through quiet farmland.The Two-Person Relay covers the same route at the same time as the marathon. Each team member runs a 13.1 mile leg of the relay.

Greenway Trail Marathon

This 'close to a marathon and 50-K', trail race will be very different from other club races and marathons. There will be limited aid, no tee shirts, mile markers or finisher's awards. The race is being called 'close to a marathon and 50-K' distance because the course will not be accurately measured and cannot be used as a qualifier for USATF events. Using existing trail maps the marathon course is estimated to be between 26 and 27 miles and the 50-K course is over 31.1 miles. At the very least, both courses are longer than the standard marathon and 50-K distances. Generally, there are new trail detours each year. Participants should be comfortable running on and navigating trails, running independently and able to complete the marathon distance. The course is over 95% single track dirt trails, includes water crossings and depending on the weather on March 1, could be sloppy and/or slippery.For those that want to run the 50K distance, they can elect to do so on race day. However, only those that reach Clopper Lake, about 15 miles into the race, by a predetermined cut off time may do so. These 'faster' runners will run a loop around the lake which will make their run slightly longer than 31.1 miles. Marathon runners will not run a loop around the lake this year.
