Despite centuries of research on human and animal running, there is still a great deal that we don't know about the biomechanics of running. There are many myths about running that have been discredited in recent years, and new studies have turned up some surprising findings and debates. The presentation will also address limits on the speed and energy costs of runners.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
