Natural running footwear brand Newton, distributed in SA by running legend Zola Budd, held barefoot running coaching clinics presented by Newton international’s Ian Adamson throughout the first week of June.

The clinics were held in Durban on the 4th of June at Mabhida Stadium, Johannesburg on the 5th and 6th at St. Benedicts College and on the 7th and 8th in Cape Town at Sahara Park, Newlands. Retailers, biokineticists, podiatrist and other running and footwear specialists were invited to receive barefoot running “training” to advise customers and clients on correct form when running in barefoot or natural shoes. 

The rainy Cape Town weather meant that running drills were performed  outside underneath the stadium roof at Sahara park
Adamson put attendees through a series of running drills to complement and support barefoot running training. Attendees were videographed whilst running and taught a few tips on good running form before being analysed for a second time around.
