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. Effective interventions on reducing the risk of RRIs are sparse and there is no information on facilitators and barriers in the development and/or implementation of such interventions in the literature. Thus, it is not possible to create strategies to make the most of facilitators, and/or avoid or overcome barriers related to the development and implementation of running-related injury prevention programs. The purpose of this study will be to identify and describe the facilitators and barriers encountered in the process of developing and implementing a running-related injury prevention program. This study will have two phases. The Phase 1 population of this study will be composed of participants in the development of the running-related injury prevention program (i.e runners, coaches, health professionals, members of running groups, researchers, etc, who participated in step 1 of the overall research project). The population of the second stage of this study will be composed of a random sample of 50 runners previously involved in a randomized clinical trial (stage 2 of the general research project) and who received the prevention program for one year. A semi-structured interview will be conducted and recorded to gather information about the facilitators and barriers related to development (phase 1) and implementation (phase 2) of the runningrelated injury prevention program. The interview will be conducted until saturation of the subject. Qualitative data from interview transcripts will be grouped into categories, and these will be analyzed descriptively. The analysis and dissemination of facilitators and barriers to prevention programs is extremely important so that future attempts at the development and implementation of future programs may consider such factors, thus optimizing the development of these programs and increasing their probability of being effective.
