Running In The Name Of Research

Academics at Northumbria University are looking for runners to take part in a new study.

Have you always fancied taking part in some scientific research? Are you male and aged 18-45? Well, this could be your chance!

Academics at Northumbria University are looking for runners to take part in a study investigating the effects of a berry supplement on running performance. 

The study would involve three visits to the lab at Northumbria University in Newcastle (including a familiarisation trial). Those taking part will do submaximal and maximal treadmill running before and after taking the berry supplement for seven days. 

And there is a reward for your time (and effort) with participants being given £50 as well as a VO2max test. 

There are some criteria you need to meet should you wish to be considered, you must be a non-smoking male runner aged between 18-45. You must have completed a 5K run in 25mins or less in the last 6 weeks, and you must not be taking any supplements/medications or have any allergies that are relevant to the study. 

For more information, or to discuss your eligibility to take part you should contact Gavin Cowper on gavin.w.cowper@northumbria.ac.uk.
