As a first initiative to promote the cause of running in a healthy manner YouTooCanRun has decided to take up a study to determine the ‘Sweat Rate’ of runners all over India. This study is a pathbreaking effort to be one of India’s first scientific studies and will soon be the world’s largest study.
Already covering over 175 runners in 8 locations the study has revealed some very interesting aspects of how Indian runners are differentially adapted as compared to runners studied in the past in Western countries.
This study is entirely self funded and YouTooCanRun has partnered with Asian Heart Institute who are bringing the much needed scientific rigor.
