Foot morphology and gait patterns of children have been explored in order to understand the developmental stages [1–3]. However, these studies have mostly focused on static and walking conditions. The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of running in children between the ages of 3 and 11 years and to investigate gender differences. This was done as a multi-lab, multi-country study; but the foot pressure results from the Japanese children are presented here.
