  • Any kind of running can eventually cause aches from exercising, but it is not bad for you knees. In reality, it's actually a good exercise. Many athletes run sideways run sideways for practice, including but not limited to Rugby players. http://groups.northwestern.edu/rugby/stuff/Running%20Straight%20vs.%20Sideways.pdf However keep in mind, anything not in moderation can be bad for your health, and you need to look where you are going.
  • There is no risk to the knees with proper warm ups. Running sideways also helps strengthen the hip and groin muscles. If a person overuses a tendon during certain activities such as dancing, cycling or running, the tendon stretches like a worn-out rubber band and becomes inflamed. With care, good stretches and warm ups the knees will not be injured by sideways running.
