Does long-distance running have an effect on testosterone and bone health in men? EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER: Men running distances up to 80 kilometers per week appear to have higher leg bone mineral density (BMD) than sedentary men, but no consistent difference was found in men running longer distances. Collegiate male runners have similar BMD to golfers but lower than wrestlers. Running does not appear to have an effect on testosterone levels (SOR: B, cohort and cross-sectional studies)
