Participation in marathons, half-marathons and triathlons has skyrocketed over the past three decades. Despite the potential cardioprotective and anti-aging effects of distance running, there are several reports of race-related heart attacks and cardiac arrests in marathon runners each year.
Recent research evaluating the cause of cardiac arrest in registered marathon runners has identified the most frequent clinical and autopsy findings as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Chronic endurance exercise may (at least in some athletes) induce adverse cardiovascular changes and increase the likelihood for heart attacks and abnormal heart rhythms.
