  • running surfaces

    The city of Dallas is planning on replacing an existing asphalt jogging
    track around a small lake with a concrete track. A local jogging group has
    shown some concern regarding the ill-effects of running over concrete versus
    asphalt. Both surfaces are extremely hard and should theoretically not be
    any different to a jogger in regards to joint loading injuries. I have
    found a few articles which treat both surfaces as equal. Does anyone know
    of any articles which found a difference between jogging on concrete as
    opposed to asphalt, or have any comments on this subject.

    I will post the responses if enough interest is shown.

    Thank you,

    Ericka Calton
