Running Special Interest Group


The Running Special Interest Group (SIG) exists to further the knowledge of members who have a particular interest in running-related issues. The SIG will act as a facilitator for its members by bringing together individuals with a common interest in running issues through forums, meetings, and 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.

  • Provide a forum for interaction with other health care professionals regarding running-related issues.
  • Represent the interests of the membership of the Running SIG within the Academy.
