methodological approaches that guided the data collection. Third, we present the three themes that emerged from the dibaajimowinan of the women: running as ceremony and healing; the significance of running as a group; and running for health and personal goals. Finally, we discuss the importance and implications

Age-related changes in performance affect all sport disciplines from sprinting to endurance events. 1 , 2 For swimming and running, previous research has shown that performance decrements with age are greater for endurance events than for sprinting events. 3 – 5 However, the reasons that exercise

Distance-running performance is dependent on the speed that can be sustained for the duration of an event. This speed is determined by the interaction of several physiological factors 1 that include maximal rate of oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ), anaerobic capacity, fractional utilization of V ˙ O

observing that the speed threshold for transition from walking to running is lower on an MT compared to OG. 13 Differences in MT and OG gait strategies have also been observed in running. Nigg et al 14 examined the effects of gait mode on foot kinematics during running. The authors specifically reported a

Running economy, defined as the oxygen or energy cost of transport, has been found to be an important and reliable predictor of running performance. 1 The value of running economy as a performance predictor arises because both metabolic and biomechanical aspects contribute to it, and by extension

Running race participation has seen an approximate 300% increase in the last 2 decades. 1 Unfortunately, between 7.7 to 17.8 running-related injury incidences per 1000 hours of running are reported in novice and recreational runners. 2 Previous injuries, 3 self-reported rearfoot strike pattern

Ultramarathon running events and participation numbers have increased progressively over the past three decades ( Deutsche Ultramarathon Vereinigung, 2018 ). Anecdotally, there has been growing interest from both amateur and elite endurance runners looking for new adventurous courses and challenges
