In: FSEM Annual Scientific Conference 2018 - Return to Play, 15 Sept 2018, RCSI, Dublin.

The popularity of recreational running continues to grow nationally. Previous international research has demonstrated a very high risk of running related injuries (RRIs) in recreational runners. These injuries pose a barrier to continued training, as well as to the physical and mental health benefits associated with running. Currently, there is a paucity of epidemiological information on Irish recreational runners. Therefore, the aim of this study is to gain an understanding of the prevalence, location, type and severity of RRI’s in recreational runners in Ireland.
