Adelaide's Dr Brett Hill is throwing away his running shoes for his latest cause. The chiropractor, author and wellness expert is best-known for his role on Australia's No. 1 health podcast show, The Wellness Guys, and also for pioneering the latest fitness trend: barefoot running.

Next weekend, Dr Brett will be tackling the 12km City-Bay Fun Run on bitumen with no shoes in an effort to raise $10,000 for the Australian Spinal Research Foundation (ASRF) – and to remind people about good posture, spinal health, and that going barefoot is “normal”.

“Modern running shoes were only invented in the mid-1970s. Prior to that time everyone was at least a minimalist, if not barefoot, runner,” Dr Brett says. “Running without shoes is good for your posture and decreases the ground reaction forces.”

Dr Brett has been researching and teaching barefoot running for the past three years. On August 18 he will team up with ultra-marathon world record holder Kim Morrison in Melbourne at the inaugural Barefoot Athlete Running Workshop.

Closer to home, Dr Brett is encouraging individuals to sponsor him $1-$10 per km for the City-Bay Fun Run. “Corporate sponsorships of $1000 or more will be featured on my T-shirt, promoted on my Facebook pages (with over 5000 fans) and thanked on Australia’s #1 health podcast show The Wellness Guys,” he says.

Money raised will be directed to the ASRF to facilitate research and disseminate knowledge that furthers the understanding, development and effectiveness of chiropractic care.
