b) an airport with a relatively short runway and w/out escape areas.
This kind of contributing factor is only relevant in the decision process analisys. You cannot call it a cause, there are thousands of landings in that rwy that are not accidents. For example, if the rwy was contaminated, and no information reached the crew, that would be what we might call a cause, but that's not the case, I think.
