The disorder has its name from endurance runs, since this often happens to runners, especially long-distance runners.
The pain stays at the front of the knee since the tendon is being trigged from friction against the outside of femur. Symptoms occur when running. As soon as the runner is well away, the pain will decrease, but pain will often return and be more distinct after a training or running session.
There are several causes leading to a Runner´s knee, but the pain is almost always caused by friction and an irritated tendon. Uneven length of legs, too tight gluts or thigh muscles or too much strain will trigger the condition. Also if the training is increased considerably during a short period of time.
