Stanford Research on Runners

Just wanted to follow up on the post below. Lauren and her team (Katie O'Neal 31:34.37 10000m. runner and former Stanford All American Adam Tenforde) visited my school today and were very well received by my runners. I think this is an excellent study that will hopefully answer some questions about how we as coaches could prevent our athletes from getting hurt in the future. If you are interested, contact Lauren at the email address below and you can arrange a date and time for them to visit your athletes at your school. The DXA bone density scan is normally $800.


Feel free to contact Lauren at the email address or phone number below. Well worth your team's time to take part in this injury study (only 15 minutes to get the ball rolling).

Would your cross country team like to participate in a study on injury prevention? Stanford University is conducting research on preventing injury in high school distance runners, and is seeking to visit high schools in Northern California to speak with their teams about getting involved. The study entails an initial 15-minute questionnaire and shorter, follow-up questionnaires to understand the risk factors for injury in this population of runners. Though it is not required, all participants are also invited to receive a free DXA bone density scan and a biomechanical analysis at Stanford.

If you would like more information on this study, please contact Lauren Sayres at lcsayres@stanford.edu or (925) 381-7279.
