Biomechanics Running Study

The Biomechanics Lab at UMass Amherst is looking for research volunteers for a study for a Master’s Thesis. There is an option to figure out your VO2 max if interested.

What we are looking for:

  • Forefoot runners (land on the toe or ball of foot first while running)
  • Over 18 years old
  • No major injuries that kept you from running for 3 or more days in a row, such as a stress fracture or muscle tear, in the previous six months
  • Male or female
  • Run at least 15 miles per week
  • Study will last approximately 2 hours

Contact Carl Jewell at for more information and to volunteer. Please pass this message along if you know anyone who may be interested.
