- Target number of participants1106
- InterventionsThe intervention includes a tailored online advice for the prevention of running-related injuries, based on the risk factors that have been determined in the current available scientific literature. The focus of the intervention will be on personal factors, training factors, running biomechanics and equipment.
- Primary outcomeThe number of self-reported running-related injuries
- Secondary outcome- Running days missed due to injuries
- Absence of work due to injuries
- Score on the SQUASH-questionnaire

- Brief summaryRationale: Running Related Injuries (RRIs) are very frequent among all types of runners and frequently mentioned as reason to stop running. It is therefore important to prevent injuries in all types of runners, since this will reduce medical cost, prevent dropouts from running and will enhance physical activity with its associated health benefits. Several risk factors for RRIs have been found in literature. Therefore, preventive measures as a target for these risk factors can be introduced.
