Objective To investigate if running distance to first running-related injury varies between foot postures in novice runners wearing neutral shoes. Design A 1-year epidemiological observational prospective cohort study. Setting Denmark. Participants A total of 927 novice runners equivalent to 1854 feet were included. At baseline, foot posture on each foot was evaluated using the foot-posture index and categorised into highly supinated (n=53), supinated (n=369), neutral (n=1292), pronated (n=122… 
Motion Control Shoes Reduce the Risk of Pronation-Related Pathologies in Recreational Runners: A Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
Motion control shoes may reduce the risk of pronation-related running injuries, but did not influence the riskof other running-related injuries.
Injury risk in runners using standard or motion control shoes: a randomised controlled trial with participant and assessor blinding
TLDR
The overall injury risk was lower in participants who had received motion control shoes and those with pronated feet may benefit most from this shoe type, based on secondary analysis.
Foot Core Training to Prevent Running-Related Injuries: A Survival Analysis of a Single-Blind, Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
This foot exercise program showed evidence of effective RRI risk reduction in recreational runners at 4 to 8 months of training and better understand the underlying biomechanical mechanisms of injury, types of injuries, and subgroups of runners who might benefit maximally.
The Association Between Rearfoot Motion While Barefoot and Shod in Different Types of Running Shoes in Recreational Runners.
TLDR
The rearfoot eversion angle changed an average 4 degrees when running shod and the RM barefoot altered quite a lot when using a running shoe, as claimed by the manufacturers.
THE USE OF A STATIC MEASURE TO PREDICT FOOT POSTURE AT MIDSUPPORT DURING RUNNING.
TLDR
The standing LAA was found to be highly predictive of the running LAA at midsupport while running, and approximately 90% of the variance associated with foot posture at midsUpport in running could be explained by theStanding LAA.
Relationship between Posture and Non-Contact Lower Limb Injury in Young Male Amateur Football Players: A Prospective Cohort Study
Posture, a potentially modifiable injury risk factor, is considered important in injury screening/prevention in athletes, yet few studies investigate relationships between posture and injury. This
Transitioning to minimal running footwear; implications for performance and running related injury when compared to conventional running shoes.
TLDR
A MFW transition was found to significantly improve running economy and gait-retraining may have a negative influence on RE, but higher plantar pressures and loading rates were noted in MFW vs. CRS that may increase injury risk during this transition period.
High eccentric hip abduction strength reduces the risk of developing patellofemoral pain among novice runners initiating a self-structured running program: a 1-year observational study.
TLDR
Findings from this study indicate that, among novice runners, a level of peak eccentric hip abduction strength that is higher than normal may reduce the risk of PFP during the first 50 km of a self-structured running program.

TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that the current approach of prescribing in-shoe pronation control systems on the basis of foot type is overly simplistic and potentially injurious.
Does running shoe prescription alter the risk of developing a running injury? : original research article
TLDR
A clinical lower limb biomechanical assessment, followed by running shoe purchase, does not reduce the risk of developing a running injury any more than following general advice onRunning shoe purchase.
Protocol for the dano-run study: a 1-year observational follow up study on running related injuries in 1000 novice runners
TLDR
This study may be the first study to adequately measure running patterns reliably in a large sample and create a solid foundation for future randomised controlled trials in this field.
Predictors of Running-Related Injuries Among 930 Novice Runners
TLDR
The findings of the present study suggest BMI >30 kg/m2, age between 45 and 65 years, noncompetitive behavior, and previous injuries not related to running are associated with increased risk of injury among novice runners, while BMI <20 kg/ m2 was protective.
Incidence and risk factors of running-related injuries during preparation for a 4-mile recreational running event
TLDR
The findings suggest that novice runners may benefit the most out of preventive interventions for RRI, and male and female participants have different risk profiles.
Higher risk of injury in overweight novice runners
TLDR
Overweight novice runners that take up running are more prone to a running related injury (RRI), and the proportion of injured runners in the overweight group was significantly higher, the exposure time was equal in both groups.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that assigning shoes based on the shape of the plantar foot surface had little influence on injuries even after considering other injury risk factors.
Incidence and determinants of lower extremity running injuries in long distance runners: a systematic review
TLDR
There was strong evidence that a long training distance per week in male runners and a history of previous injuries were risk factors for injuries, and that an increase in trainingdistance per week was a protective factor for knee injuries.
Training errors and running related injuries: a systematic review.
TLDR
The link between training characteristics (volume, duration, frequency, and intensity) and running related injuries was examined but it was not possible to identify which training errors were related toRunning related injuries.
