Tällainen tupsahti sähköpostiin pyynnöllä lähettää eteenpäin mahdollisesti kiinnostuneille:

Have you ever wondered if running long distances is healthy? We invite you to participate in a research study that will answer this question.

The study is called the Ultrarunners Longitudinal TRAcking (ULTRA) Study. You may participate in this study if you have completed at least one ultramarathon (50 K or longer).

The main purpose of the study is to determine if high levels of exercise alter health risks compared with sedentary or moderately active lifestyles. This information is important so that we know if there are health benefits or risks from participating in ultra-endurance activities.

If you are interested in participating, you will be asked to complete an initial web-based questionnaire that will take approximately 30 minutes. There will then be periodic follow-up questionnaires over the course of many years.

The study is under the direction of Dr. Marty Hoffman. You may contact him to discuss the study at (916) 843-9027 or martin.hoffman@va.gov. He is associated with the VA Northern California Health Care System.

If you would like to participate in the study, please go to the following link: https://stanfordmedicine.qualtrics.com/WRQualtricsSurveyEngine/?SID=SV_aY1e47DdzVRjHKI&RID=MLRP_ewztuf7fV9SrLgw&_=1

Or you may type into your browser: http://bit.ly/ULTRAStudy

We very much appreciate your interest and participation in this important study, and please feel free to pass the information on to others you know who have completed an ultramarathon.

Marty Hoffman, MD

Ihan vaan kannustuksena tutkimukseen osallistumista harkitseville: norjalainen pitkäaikaistutkimus, jossa seurattiin sikäläisen Birkebeiner-hiihdon osallistujia (tai tarkemmin sanoen 150 eri-ikäistä miestä, jotka sijoittuivat tuloksissa kärkineljännekseen) vuodesta 1976 vuoteen 2006 paljasti mielenkiintoisia seikkoja: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/02/100209200756.htm
