Research on running through COVID-19

University of Nottingham researchers are looking for runners of all levels to take part in a study examining how their running habits have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what impact running could potentially have on the virus itself. The research project is also being supported by parkrun.

COVID-19 has affected everyone's lives, and many keen runners in the general population have been affected too, by either contracting COVID-19 or through changes to their running activities due to lockdown or other restrictions that have been in place.

The team are looking for runners of all ages and abilities, whether you have had COVID-19 or not, and are currently healthy or recovering, to take part in the research, which will involve completing surveys and sharing their training data. The survey is available in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese and is open to all runners around the world.
