from Los Angeles Times
Ultramarathoners go to extremes, but their rate of major injuries may be somewhat moderate.
A study of 396 ultramarathoners found that while many suffer injuries throughout the course of their race, the vast majority of them are minor. Researchers looked at medical data on runners who competed in
Racing the Planet 4 Deserts
series, a four-part ultra-race that takes place over seven days in rough terrain on four continents. Runners travel 150 miles per race.
