“Thank you so much for your help. You really made a difference to our training and I wouldn’t be feeling this good now if it wasn’t for Chi Running” Faye Gerrard on completing the London Marathon, 21 April 2013
Chi Running combines various T’ai Chi principals and the natural flow of energy with the power of running. This creates a highly efficient running technique that reduces impact on the body and lessens the risk of injury.
Chi Running is a common sense approach to running. The emphasis is on technique and correcting running errors such as poor posture, muscular inbalances, heavy heel strike, weak core muscles, tension in the neck and shoulders and slow cadence.
Chi Running focuses on alignment and relaxation. This not only makes the runner more energy efficient and able to run further and faster with less effort, but can also create a greater sense of well-being and a more enjoyable active healthy life.

"Having previously read the book, the course was invaluable in fine tuning my technique, and having Gray`s individual attention meant that I gained the confidence to apply the system immediately." – Ted Evans, One-day Chi Running Workshop, 23 February 2013

Often runners run with to slow a cadence. This leads to ‘plodding’ or landing heavily. If you run with a quick cadence you’re much more energy efficient, lighter on your feet and less likely to injure yourself.
