Current quality of evidence in regard to risk factors for running related injuries (RRIs) is low.
To comprehend the mechanisms of developing a RRI, we need to further unravel the complex interaction of possible risk factors.
Running is an increasingly popular form of physical activity and has many health benefits. But unfortunately, also RRIs occur. To develop an injury prevention strategy, we first have to find out which (or what combination of) risk factors is responsible for the high incidence of RRIs.
