Research Project on Joint Health in Runners

A new research project is being launched to explore the running behaviour of athletes of all abilities (e.g. training volume and intensity) and the effect these have on joint health – particularly knees.

A team of academics and clinicians from Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis and the University of Nottingham are leading the project. They are looking to recruit 10,000 runners into the ‘Health of Adults Longitudinal Observational (HALO) study’, which will make it one of the largest and most comprehensive projects ever looking at recreational running.

If you would like to take part in the study or find out more, please visit Anyone aged over 18 - regardless of how little or often you run - can take part.

Further details of the project (and contact details) can be found on the Centre website
