Excessive Progression in Weekly Running Distance and Risk of Running-Related Injuries: An Association Which Varies According to Type of Injury

Initiatives -
To examine whether an associa-tion between a sudden change in weekly running distance and running-related injury varies accord-ing to injury type. Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.
