This workshop is for all levels of fitness, beginners to long-distance runners or walkers. Mild injuries are fine as long you can stand and walk or run. Injury prevention is our first premise of ChiRunning and ChiWalking so minor knee, hip or back pain should not be a deterrent to joining the workshop.
