Abstract Objective: To provide an analysis of running injuries among those participating in Sun Run InTraining clinics during 2000 and 2001. Method: Two different questionnaires were developed for InTraining clinic participants. These assessed participants’ fitness, their running routines, and their injury history. One questionnaire was administered in 2000 and the other in2001. Results: Overall, 31.6% of the 1265 respondents were classified as injured during the study period. The knee was the most frequently injured area. In 2000, one-half of injured runners had experienced a running injury in the past. In 2001, the level of rehabilitation from previous injuries accounted for 90.1% of the explained variation in our training function score (TFS), with the remainder explained by differences in self-assessed physical fitness. Conclusion: Runners who consider themselves unfit and have a history of injury should understand that they face an increased likelihood of experiencing a running injury.
