SummaryThe gross energy cost of treadmill and track running is re-investigated from data published in the literature. [...] Key Result Between 8 and 25 km/h, the following linear equation: V̇O2 = 3.5 speed (or met = km/h) was very close to the cubic equation. This linear equation for track running is, however, different from the treadmill linear equation, particularly for speeds over 15 km/h. This equation is also slightly different from the one published by Pugh (1970) for track running from 7 trained subjects…Expand
Better Economy on Indoor Track Compared to Treadmill Running With 1% Inclination
TLDR
It is concluded that constant inclination during the treadmill test might not be suitable to reproduce comparable effort to running on the track; rather, there is an optimal treadmill inclination for different intensities to reproduce similar effort compared to the track running. Expand
The energy cost of horizontal walking and running in adolescents.
TLDR
In adolescents, within the range of speeds tested, the relationship between speed of movement and energy cost for running is linear, but for walking is curvilinear, and adult models for estimating VO2 or caloric expenditure do not account for the higher relative energy cost of walking and running in adolescents. Expand
A 1% treadmill grade most accurately reflects the energetic cost of outdoor running.
TLDR
Equality of the energetic cost of treadmill and outdoor running is demonstrated with the use of a 1% treadmill grade over a duration of approximately 5 min and at velocities between 2.92 and 5.0 m s-1. Expand
The metabolic costs of walking and running up a 30-degree incline: implications for vertical kilometer foot races
TLDR
On a 30° incline, metabolic power increases linearly with velocity, suggesting most VK racers should walk rather than run, and extrapolation suggests that at faster velocities, running likely costs less than walking. Expand
Energy expenditure of walking and running: comparison with prediction equations.
TLDR
Running has a greater energy cost than walking on both the track and treadmill, and the Leger equation and ACSM prediction model appear to be the most suitable for the prediction of running energy expenditure. Expand
Factors Affecting Running Economy in Trained Distance Runners
TLDR
There is a strong association between RE and distance running performance, with RE being a better predictor of performance than maximal oxygen uptake (V̇O2max) in elite runners who have a similar V̇ O2max. Expand
Utilizing Regression Analysis to Evaluate Running Economy
Previous investigators evaluated running economy (RE) with participants running at the same speed by examining the oxygen consumption (VO2) variance. This study was designed to examine the influenceExpand

TLDR
It was concluded that either of the derived variables vVT and vVO2max appear to explain significant variation in distance running performance among adolescent female cross country runners. Expand
Running Performance, Pace Strategy, and Thermoregulation Differ Between a Treadmill and Indoor Track
TLDR
Data indicate that performance differences exist between a 10-km time trial performed on a TM vs. an IT, potentially because of differences in pacing strategy or metabolic cost between the 2 conditions. Expand
A novel method for calculating the energy cost of turning during running
TLDR
It is concluded that the gross V·O2 of running at a fixed speed with turns is proportional to turn frequency and that the EE of a turn is different at different running speeds. Expand

Aerobic requirements and maximum aerobic power in treadmill and track running.
TLDR
It is concluded that treadmill determinations of oxygen uptake may be validly applied to track running in calm air within the range of 180...260 m/min. Expand
Energy cost of running and walking in young women.
The energy cost of level walking and level and grade running was determined in 7 active women with max VO2 = 50.7 ml/kg-min. Speeds investigated were 4 to 8 km/hr walking and 8 to 14.5 km/hr running.Expand

TLDR
The oxygen cost and energy expenditure of submaximal treadmill running was evaluated in 9 male distance runners and there is apparently a wide variation in the oxygen cost of running in trained runners. Expand
Oxygen cost of running in trained and untrained men and women.
TLDR
It was concluded that there were differences in the oxygen cost of running not only between the trained and untrained groups but also between males and females. Expand
Differences and changes in VO2 among young runners 10 to 18 years of age.
TLDR
It was concluded that Vo2 max (ml/min) increases no faster than does body weight among moderately active growing boys and that both age and training contribute to a change in Vo2 submax; a factor which accounts greatly for improvements in middle-distance race performance. Expand
Maximal oxygen intake and nomographic assessment of functional aerobic impairment in cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Maximal oxygen intake was measured during the last 2 to 4 minutes of a multistage treadmill test of maximal exercise in 151 men and 144 women of 29 to 73 years of age to define the aerobic requirements under these conditions of testing. Expand
