A new study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, says that any amount of running is associated with a significantly lower risk of premature death. The researchers, including those from Victoria University and the University of Sydney in Australia, found 14 suitable studies, involving 232,149 people, whose health had been tracked for between 5.5 and 35 years. During this time, 25,951 of the study participants died, the researchers said.

The analysis looked for studies on the association between running or jogging and the risk of death from all causes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. When the study data was pooled, any amount of running was associated with a 27 per cent lower risk of death from all causes for both sexes, compared with no running, they said.

Running was also associated with a 30 per cent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and a 23 per cent lower risk of death from cancer, according to the study. Even small 'doses'-for example, once weekly or less, lasting less than 50 minutes each time, and at a speed below eight kilometres (km) an hour, still seemed to be associated with significant health or longevity benefits.
