The Biomechanics of Running:
The Effects Running Surfaces have on Injury
The purpose of this paper is to provide a description of the influence that sport surfaces have on injury. It may help to understand how specific sports surfaces effect athletes, while listing the advantages and disadvantages of such sports surfaces to the runner. Running surfaces cause many sports and exercise injuries because of the frequency of contact between the shoe and the surface. Changes
