Barefoot running injury research for University College London
Our study in to barefoot and minimalist footwear running injuries focused purely on people training for the London Marathon, however in order to increase participant numbers for the study we have also included all marathons taking place between April 21st and July 1st. So if you are training for any marathons between those dates either barefoot foot and/or in minimalist footwear and would like to take part in our study, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for further information.

interesting. What is your control group - traditional shoes?
Ian.you did this on 25/12...............
have you changed your remit since
Yes, we are not just looking at the London Marathon now, we are looking at all marathons between April 21st and 1st of July
Problem is initial study was just looking at the London Marathon and the training three months prior to this, which meant the study started mid January, so Marathons at the beginning of April could not be included when the changes to include other marathons was done. So we will get to include all May marathons, just not all April. Plus a study by Macintyre (1991) found most running injuries occured between the months of January to June (looking at over 4000 runners).
