I am unaware of any scientific research on this topic. The claims made on this website—namely increased energy efficiency, increased speed, and reduced stress, impact, and injury—are scientific claims that should be tested.  Please share any peer-reviewed papers on Chi Running.

Hi Dave,
nice that you ask for new materials. Very necessary and upcoming. A PhD study was done some years ago. Here links for a 4 page short version and the full work:

chirunning.com/ChiRunningUNCStudy2013.pdf

chirunning.com/2012 UNC Running Impact Study.pdf

GossDonaldLee.2012.A Comparison of Lower Extremity Joint Work and Initial Loading Rates among Four Different Running Styles.UNC-RunningImpactStudy.PhD-ChiRunning.120

Hope this helps, let me/us know what your thoughts are on.
Best wishes,
Benji
