Backward running, also known as backwards running, running backwards, reverse running, retro running, or retro locomotion is the act of running in reverse, so that one travels in the direction one's back is facing rather than one's front. It is classed as a retro movement, the reverse of any normal movement. Running backwards up a hill is not very dangerous. It will always be at a lower speed due to the enhanced difficulty, and if one trips there is less of a distance towards the ground and it is easier to absorb the impact with the arms and buttocks so that the head is not as likely to hit.

  • Backward running, also known as backwards running, running backwards, reverse running, retro running, or retro locomotion is the act of running in reverse, so that one travels in the direction one's back is facing rather than one's front. It is classed as a retro movement, the reverse of any normal movement. Backward running is a less natural motion, but can be accomplished with some speed with practice. It is better to start out backward walking (also called retropedaling), which is relatively easy, and speed up. Like normal running, running up and down hills backwards will add an additional degree of difficulty. Running backwards up a hill is not very dangerous. It will always be at a lower speed due to the enhanced difficulty, and if one trips there is less of a distance towards the ground and it is easier to absorb the impact with the arms and buttocks so that the head is not as likely to hit. Running backwards down a hill is more dangerous, and it is advised that someone learn how to drop into a backward roll before attempting it, to deal with any resulting tripping or loss of balance in the prone movement. Although the distance to the ground is greater running downhill backwards, the incline makes it much easier to perform rolls in downhill running, than when running level ground, so it can be done more instinctively. This applies to backward running and the backroll as it does to front running and the front roll. (en)
  • La retro running o backwards running è un tipo di corsa particolarmente diffusa in Giappone, in Europa e negli Stati Uniti. Nella cultura giapponese la retro running ha un'origine molto antica, infatti la popolazione giapponese pratica la camminata e la corsa all'indietro come esercizio fisico quotidiano da secoli. In Europa e negli USA invece la retro running risale a periodi molto più recenti, ma è largamente diffusa. Negli USA ha iniziato a essere praticata negli anni ottanta, mentre nel continente europeo è fiorita negli anni novanta. In tutto il mondo, però, si svolgono anche gare su svariate distanze dagli sprint sui 100 metri alle maratone. (it)
