Is Running, Even Just Once a Week Better Than No Running? Here’s What Researchers Found

According to a new study, any amount of running is linked to a significantly lower risk of death from any cause.

The study that published in the “British Journal of Sports Medicine” however discovered that it is not clear how good running is for staving off the risk of death from any cause and particularly from cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Researchers claimed that their meta-analysis showed that running participation is associated with 27%, 30% and 23% lower risk of all-cause, cardiovascular and cancer mortality respectively, compared with no running.

A meta-regression analysis showed no significant dose–response trends for weekly frequency, weekly duration, pace and the total volume of running, they said.

Increased rates of participation in running, regardless of its dose, would probably lead to substantial improvements in Population health and longevity, the findings showed.

Any amount of running, even just once a week, is better than no running, but higher doses of running may not necessarily be associated with greater mortality benefits, researchers added.
