Sports Medicine Australia is pleased to present the next event part of the QLD Emerging Leader Series – “The ins and outs of risk factors for running-related injury among recreational runners”.

Recreational running is among the most popular forms of physical activity, worldwide. While there are well-documented health-enhancing effects of recreational running, this activity also carries a risk of running-related injury. In this webinar, Dr Benjamin Peterson, who is a Lecturer in Podiatry at Central Queensland University, will discuss what is (and is not) known about the risk factors for running-related injury among recreational runners, based on both existing evidence and new evidence from recent research projects. 

Anthony Leicht will be the MC for this event. It is free for SMA Members and $25 for Non-Members.

Registration is essential. Please ensure you check the time zone. Upon booking, a calendar link will be available to save to your time zone.
