GFR is a running technique focused on simplicity developed by the founders of Playmakers, Curt Munson and John Benedict and former Olympic runner Grant Robison. It is a product of years of teaching clinics, reading books and articles, studying running form philosophies, and numerous years of learning through trial and error. Instead of a complex biomechanical analysis, GFR focuses on 3 simple, essential steps focused on running light and easy. With simplicity as a primary philosophy, GFR has positively reached thousands of runners since 2006.
In 2010 GFR partnered with New Balance, enabling GFR to rise to new levels of development and reach national and international audiences.
Our basic philosophy encourages one very simple mantra:
RUN FASTER. RUN EASIER. RUN HEALTHIER.
