Running

There is already a way of running with your young children – you push them in front of you, in a running-style stroller. With your arms holding onto its handle, however, your form isn't exactly ideal. That's why a group of entrepreneurs from Bend, Oregon has created the kidRunner. It's a kid jogger that you tow.

People running outdoors speed up and slow down without thinking about it – it just happens. On a treadmill, however, they have to manually adjust the speed of the machine. Perhaps they won't have to for too longer, however. Scientists at The Ohio State University have developed a prototype treadmill that detects when its user's running speed changes, and adjusts its own speed accordingly. Read More
Exercising in the dark is something that many of us are forced to do by our perpetually hectic lifestyles. However, that does inevitably mean encountering extra dangers en route, such as uneven pavements and impatient drivers. The 270-degree Shoe Lights from Night Runner are designed to allow you to exercise more safely at night. Read More
We've certainly seen a lot of running shoes with shock-absorbing cushions in the soles, that are designed to absorb energy on the downstep and then release it on the upstep. The Enko shoe, however, takes that concept a step farther – it incorporates two actual coil-sprung shocks on each shoe, along with a hinged second sole. Read More
The all-new Altra Halo shoe is a smart shoe for runners with an integrated sensor that measures aspects of your gait and sends it to your smartphone or iFit GPS Watch. Unlike other performance metrics that you analyze after your run, the Halo's data set helps you to make adjustments during your workout. Read More
Running may be a great source of exercise, but it isn't exactly a low-impact workout – in fact, many runners are injured by the repeating jarring of their feet against the ground. That's why Australian startup Run4 developed the Bionic Runner. It looks like a seatless bicycle and is designed to replicate the motion of running, but without the "hard landing" at the bottom of every stride. Read More
Whether they're training or taking part in actual competitions, athletes have to maintain a delicate balance – they want to make sure that they're "giving it everything they've got," yet they don't want to push themselves to the point that they cramp up or drop from exhaustion. That's why the BSXinsight was created. Billed as being the world's first wearable lactate threshold sensor, it's made to let athletes know how close they're getting to the edge, so they can approach it but not go over. Read More
Over the years, the backpack has evolved slowly. It's gained new and improved features, but it's remained essentially the same: a dual-strapped sack. But a host of more substantial backpack redesigns over recent years, such as multifunctional jacket backpacks and restructured strap systems, suggest that evolution might be accelerating. The Offpiste UltraPack leaps forward a few evolutionary stages, strapping a gear-hauling triangle to your torso via a single strap for new-found athleticism. Read More
From the Jawbone Up24 to the Samsung Gear Fit, there is a wide range of fitness trackers on store shelves. So if a new piece of technology wants to stand out, it has to offer something above and beyond what’s out there in the wild. Kickstarter project runScribe aims to do just that, providing runners with an unparalleled level of data by accurately tracking the movement of their feet during the gait cycle. Read More
