Mission Statement:

The Running Special Interest Group (Running SIG) exists to further the knowledge of Sports Physical Therapy Section members who have a particular interest in running-related issues. The Running SIG will act as a facilitator for its members by bringing together individuals with a common interest in running issues at regular business meetings and continuing education programming.  The Running SIG will also serve as a facilitator for research on various aspects of running performance, injury prevention and the physical therapy management of running-related injuries.

The Running SIG will provide a forum for discussion, a venue for program development, and a presence in the public arena of the Sports Physical Therapy Section. In particular the Running SIG shall:

  1. Enhance physical therapy diagnosis and management of running-related issues using the best available evidence.
  2. Provide a forum for discussion of running-related issues among Section members, as well as other Association sections.
  3. Develop the pursuit of running-related research methods in order to advance physical therapy practice.
  4. Provide a network for enhancing communication between clinicians, academicians and researchers in physical therapy interested in running-related issues.
  5. Provide a forum for interaction with other health care professionals regarding running-related issues.
