The evolution of running and the risk of injuries
Could it be that we’ve evolved to sit on the couch rather than run 5ks, 10ks and entire marathons? Does running cause more injuries than other sports? And can running longer distances, more frequently, reduce the risk of injuries?

This enlightening session will see best-selling author Dr. Daniel E.
