An Epidemiological Perspective on the Cause of Running Injuries.
Powell, Kenneth E.; And Others
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v14 n6 p100-03,106-08,111-14 Jun 1986

A review of three epidemiological studies, which take the population into account, showed that the only reasonably well-established cause of running injuries is the number of miles run per week.
