Many runners suffer needlessly from injury. Runners have a high chance of getting injured full stop but especially in their first year of training. Incorrect movement patterns, inferior footwear and downright overtraining are the major causes of injury. The no-pain-no-gain mentality is - sadly - still very much alive, especially amongst long distance runners.
A tailor made training program with professional coaching will hopefully take care of the overtraining aspect, providing the athlete sticks to the plan. But movement pattern errors in one's stride can be more difficult to iron out. One thing is certain, strengthening the muscles around the joints can definitely help reduce injury risk and better yet, prevent them from occurring in the first place.
