Abstract

Running is effective in increasing levels of physical activity, and also results in health benefits. However, the implementation of running as a means of promoting physical activity might also result in adverse effects such as Running-Related Injuries (RRI). RRIs pose the highest risk in running. The burden of RRIs increases the likelihood of injured runners withdrawing from running participation, and it may reduce the motivation to physical activity practice. This hampers efforts on increasing physical activity levels worldwide, which is a priority of the World Health Organization (WHO). However, effective interventions in reducing the risk of RRIs are sparse in the literature. Therefore, this research proposal is aimed at developing and evaluating a prevention program on RRIs in novice and recreational runners. A mixed method design with a sequential approach will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 is aimed at developing the prevention program on RRIs following the steps of the Intervention Mapping framework, and involving the running community (runners, trainers, coaches, running clubs, healthcare professionals, researchers, etc.) in this endeavour. Phase 2 is a randomised controlled trial aimed at evaluating the implementation process of the prevention program. Phase 3 is aimed at investigating the facilitators and barriers of the development and implementation process of the prevention program. This research proposal will result in a prevention program on RRIs that is focused on behaviour change, and will provide evaluation measures that are extremely important for implementation of such programs in "real-life". Also, the studies may provide knowledge on the development and evaluation process of prevention programs on physical activity/sports injuries. (AU)
