Bethany College track and cross country coach Aaron Yoder spends a lot of time on the treadmill in the Lindsborg, Kansas, school’s cardio room. It doesn’t seem unusual unless you see what he’s doing — running backward. Yoder, a world record holder at three distances, has been training for this weekend’s world championships for backwards running, or retro-running, in Bologne, Italy. Dr. Brian Ware, a podiatrist in Kansas City and a runner himself, said he understands the benefits of backwards running.

“With runners it’s a mindset. We do not like to take time off,” said Ware, who also backs up Yoder’s claims that running backwards is easier on the joints. He added that there’s another  benefit to backwards running. “The posture is a little bit better backwards running. When you tend to get fatigued in forward running, your back muscles get overused because you lean forward,” Ware said.
