|- Brief summary||Several initiatives have been undertaken to stimulate people to start running. In The Netherlands a promotion program called Start-to-Run (STR) is offered by the Dutch Athletics Federation. Annually over 8000 runners participate at more than 100 locations in The Netherlands. STR focuses on adults from all ages with and without previous running or sports experience and aims to encourage people to start running as part of their lifestyle. An important reason for drop-out is the occurrence of an injury.
In literature, several factors are described that might be associated with the development of these injuries. Identifying the most important risk-factors for RRIs however, has not been possible yet. This might be related to the often underpowered studies performed. Therefore, it was also not possible to analyse risk-factors in specific subgroups and risk-factors for specific injuries.
This running cohort study will focus on risk-factors for specific RRIs, health benefits for runners and reasons for discontinuation of running in a large group of novice runners. The results of this study will result in several leads for future prevention, intervention and implementation.
