    I've seen two Fx 2nd metatarsals in high school athletes that occurred while running backwards.

    If it's unnatural, it's most likely not good for you. I assume if God had intended for us to run backwards we would have eyes in the back of our heads !

    I recall a reference to intrinsic musculatrure stregthening (particularly lumbricals) which could be achieved by running backwards downhill. Same people?

    I originate from the Peak District in the UK - Buxton in fact. When I was there, and I assume still today, there was an annual backwards walking race from Macclesfield to Buxton - 12 miles. It had a substantial cult following. One of my Dad's caving mates, Dennis Worth, I think used to compete every year.
