Set Yourself Up For a Lifetime of Injury-Free Running

Whether you’re brand new to running, returning from an injury, or remaining active while aging, you can create a foundation for healthy movement with ChiRunning. A perfect program for a beginning & recovering runner.

Run with Confidence

Bring the ChiRunning technique into your body and move with confidence. Since 1999, we’ve helped tens of thousands of beginning and recovering runners develop and transform their technique––reducing and preventing injuries.

Yet, ChiRunning isn’t just about running. It’s about the principles that empower you to live a healthy and balanced life.

Run the Right Way

It’s easier than you think! ChiRunning has developed step-by-step lessons to show you how to run with less impact and less effort.

We’ll show you how relaxation and natural efficiency can become an integral part of how you move your body. You’ll discover that every run becomes an opportunity for a simple, effortless, and feel-good experience.

Move the Way You're Meant To

ChiRunning takes its guidance from the inner design of T’ai Chi which asks us to move the body in a natural order, where the big muscles do the heavy lifting, the smaller muscles do less and the tiniest muscles do very little.

This runs counter to how most people run which is using the small muscles of their legs for propulsion, neglecting the abundance of power in their core.

Bring Chi into your life

Run Smarter Not Harder

Train for your 5K while learning the foundation of the ChiRunning technique in only 6 weeks and increase your aerobic and cardiovascular capacity, improve efficiency, and stay injury-free!
