Abstract

On 17 March 2021, an erratum was published online [1] in the International Journal of Sports Medicine that showed corrected values for the incidences of injury and illness presented in the Vernillo et al. study [1]. The Vernillo et al. study was included in our systematic review[2] and therefore the following updates should be applied: Abstract The sentence describing incidence range previously read: “The overall incidence range was 1.6-4285.0 injuries per 1000 h of running and 65.0-6676.6 illnesses per 1000 h of running.” Updated to read: The overall incidence range was 1.6-61.2 injuries per 1000 h of running and 65.0-95.4 illnesses per 1000 h of running. Table 2: Below the “Incidence/Prevalence” column of the Vernillo et al. (2016) row, the injury rate per 1000 h previously read: “Injury rates per 1000 h (90% CI): MSK a: 4285.0 (3899.3- 5313.4) Skin: 2192.3 (1994.9-2718.4)” Updated to read: Injury rates per 1000 h (90% CI): MSK a: 61.2 (48.0-78.1) Skin: 31.3 (22.2-44.2). Table 3: Below the “Incidence/Prevalence” column of the Vernillo et al. (2016) row, the illness rate per 1000 h previously read: “Illness rates per 1000 h (90% CI): Medical: 6676.6 (6075.7-8278.9)” Updated to read: Illness rates per 1000 h (90% CI): Medical: 95.4 (78.8-115.5) Conclusion: The concluding sentence previously read: “Our review showed that, injury and illness are common among trail runners with an overall incidence range of 1.6- 4285.0 injuries per 1000 h of running and 65.0-6676.6 illnesses per 1000 h of running.” Updated to read: Our review showed that, injury and illness are common among trail runners with an overall incidence range of 1.6- 61.2 injuries per 1000 h of running and 65.0-95.4 illnesses per 1000 h of running.
