Evolution Running - Run Faster and Farther With Fewer Injuries

Evolution Running® is a system for teaching runners efficient and injury-reducing techniques.  Using Coach Ken Mierke’s system, hundreds of runners have shown dramatic improvement!

  • Expend less energy to run fast

  • Begin using your body’s natural shock absorption

  • Distribute running workload optimally to avoid fatigue in any one muscle group

  • Minimize vertical displacement

  • Avoid “braking” with each step

  • Utilize elastic recoil for “free speed”

Evolution of Evolution Running

For the past decade, African runners have dominated distance running at its highest levels. Research on what makes these runners faster consistently demonstrates normal VO2 Max and lactate threshold levels for elite runners. Their height, weight, and limb-length ratios all fall into the normal category. Clearly and consistently, what sets the great African runners apart is that they are more efficient than their competitors, running faster without expending more energy.

Benefits of Evolution Running

Runners who truly want to perform to their potential need to make optimizing technique a high priority in their training. Improving technique will enable any runner to maximize economy and minimize injuries, two major keys to maximizing performance.  Runners, and their coaches, have basically ignored technique for years, assuming that their "natural stride" will give them efficiency and injury resistance. We have found that this is not the case.
