  • PURPOSE This retrospective study tests if runners who habitually forefoot strike have different rates of injury than runners who habitually rearfoot strike. METHODS We measured the strike characteristics of middle- and long-distance runners from a collegiate cross-country team and quantified their history of injury, including the incidence and rate of specific injuries, the severity of each injury, and the rate of mild, moderate, and severe injuries per mile run. RESULTS Of the 52 runners… CONTINUE READING
