Justin Smith from Achieve Podiatry – has passed on this information that you all may be interested in taking part in.
I’ve attached some info about the iRACER study for your below.
Who we are:
A team of clinicians and researchers from The University of Newcastle. Ben Peterson is a PhD student who is conducting the trial, under the supervision of A/Prof Vivienne Chuter.
What is the study:
The study is titled ‘Injury Risk and its Association with Clinical Examination in Runners’ or ‘iRACER’ for short.
What we are doing:
Recruiting runners from Newcastle, Maitland, and the Central Coast to participate in a trial which is investigating clinical and biomechanical risk factors for the development of running-related injury in non-elite runners. Runners will be asked to complete a short survey, then attend a biomechanical assessment at a local clinic in Newcastle, Maitland, or the Central Coast. Runners will then be followed for a 12 month period to track the incidence of new running-related injuries.
The kinds of participants we are seeking: runners of any gender, aged 18 and over (there is no upper age-limit), who run two or more times per week, with one of those runs being 5km or greater in distance.
