In my opinion, it is relative to speed. The faster you run, you will naturally begin to land on the mid to forefoot area. If you run at say 10 min mile pace, you will land on your heels. The problem comes when people 'try' to run a certain way. If you watch someone running at a slow pace and landing on their forefoot, it is imo the most rediculous thing ever. Young children naturally run with excellent form, they don't think or learn it, it is instinctive. Again imo, the key thing is for your foot to land directly underneath your hips. Speed will naturally dictate whether the heel, midfoot, or forefoot lands first.
