The Benefits of Running

Nov. 26, 2019 at 1:48pm

Going for a run just once a week could be enough to cut your risk of early death, says a recent study of 230,000 people over 35 years. Researchers found that the people who did any running at all were 27% less likely to suffer premature death. 

Runners had a 30% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular problems and a 23% reduced risk of dying from cancer. Just 50 minutes of jogging a week produced health benefits.

And if you do not like running, try walking. The benefits that come from a 30-minute run can be experienced with a 45-minute brisk walk.
