Introduction. - The purpose of this study was to analyse the relationships between the oxygen consumption (K4 b2) and lumbar triaxial accelerometric measures (Locometrix at 100 Hz) in field running. Synthesis of results. - Nine subjects performed five-minute stages at different velocities (10, 12, 14 and 16 km/h). The oxygen consumption (ml/min/kg) was estimated (R2 = 0.92) from a multiple linear model including anterior-posterior impulse (% BW.s), craniocaudal activity (g2/Hz) and the height (cm). Conclusion. - In field running, the oxygen consumption can be estimated accurately from 100 Hz tri-axial acceleration measures.
