Regulating Shoes for Road Running
Episode 49 of the Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast is now available! This month, we speak with Geoff Burns, PhD of the Univesity of Michigan about Regulating Shoes for Road Running. Dr. Burns is a runner and sport science researcher, recently completing his PhD from Michigan’s School of Kinesiology. His research involved the development and application of methods to compare runners to simple biomechanical systems. His studies have explored mechanical patterns in high-performing individuals, ranging from sub-four-minute milers to ultra-marathoners.
Geoff received his bachelor’s and master’s degree in biomedical engineering and has worked professionally as an engineer in the automotive, medical device, and orthopedic research fields. Additionally, he competes internationally as an ultramarathoner. He is a national champion in the 100km and has represented the United States at world championships in the 50km and 100km distances, where he has finished as high as fifth (twice).
