The study’s findings revealed that 80 percent of the participants reported at least one injury, with the four most common being iliotibial band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, strained thigh/hip muscle, and medial tibial stress. Of those participants, 40 percent also acknowledged that they continued to run with their respective injuries.
