Is running the most dangerous sport?Watch
I think running has a far higher death toll than sports like rugby or boxing. Yet too many people wrongly thunk those sports should be banned despite them actually being safer. Serious injuries are also more likely in running especially during training, getting run over by cars, falls resulting in broken arms or legs especially more so on off road running and cross country.
3.7 million marathon entrants resulted in 28 deaths.
If you are looking for dangerous sports, try mountaineering above the snow line or rock climbing. Mount Blanc typically claims more than 100 lives a year.
Meanwhile, millions of us run every day and don't end up with serious injuries. I've only ever ended up with one serious injury in the 6 years I've run.
