BACKGROUND To evaluate the effect of continuous, moderate-intensity ultra-endurance running exercise on skeletal muscle and hepatic damage, as indicated by serum enzyme activity measured immediately following the race. METHODS Thirty-nine runners of the Spartathlon race (a 246-km continuous race from Athens to Sparta, Greece) who managed to complete the race within the 36-h limit participated in this study. Mean finishing time of the study participants was 33.3+/-0.5 h and their average age… 
Incidence of Hyponatremia During a Continuous 246-km Ultramarathon Running Race
TLDR
The incidence of EAH of 52 and 65%, when excluding or including these individuals with pre-race hyponatremia, was the highest reported in current literature.
DOES A MULTI-STAGE ULTRA-ENDURANCE RUN CAUSE DE- OR HYPER HYDRATION?
We investigated the changes in body mass and parameters of both renal function and fluid metabolism in a case study in a female ultra-endurance runner during the longest multi-stage mountain
Acute metabolic responses to a 24-h ultra-marathon race in male amateur runners
TLDR
The results of this study may imply that progressive decline in partial CO2 pressure (hypocapnia) that develops during prolonged exercise may contribute to increased interleukin-6 production.
A 246-km continuous running race causes significant changes in bone metabolism.
TLDR
This study showed that an ultra-distance run of nearly 250 km induced changes in RANK/RANKL/OPG interaction, which suggests a transient uncoupling of bone metabolism, increased bone resorption, and suppressed bone formation.
Mountain Ultramarathon Induces Early Increases of Muscle Damage, Inflammation, and Risk for Acute Renal Injury
TLDR
Evidence is shown that muscle damage biomarkers presented early peak levels and they were followed by a plateau phase during the last segment of a 217-km MUM, which showed that volunteers meet the risk criteria for acute kidney injury from 84 km until they finished the race, without demonstrating any clinical symptomatology.
Muscle damage and inflammation following a three-day trail run
Objectives: To investigate the effect of a three-day trail run on markers of muscle damage and inflammation in recreational runners. Method: An observational cohort study was conducted on 19
Muscle damage and inflammation following a three-day trail run
TLDR
Three consecutive days of 95km trail running resulted in modest increases in markers of muscle damage and inflammation, despite the maintenance of a heart rate above 77% APmax, Tintest rising above 39 C and mean body mass decrement of >2.0%.
Muscle damage, physiological changes, and energy balance in ultra-endurance mountain-event athletes.
TLDR
Findings may help coaches to design specific training programs that may improve nutritional intake strategies and prevent muscle damage in the athletes.
Effects of Ultratrail Running on Neuromuscular Function, Muscle Damage and Hydration Status. Differences According to Training Level
TLDR
High-level runners showed less neuromuscular fatigue compared to amateur ones, and the high-level group obtained lower percentages of change in squat jump and countermovement jump than the amateur- level group, however, the increase in creatinine was greater for the high -level group (p < 0.05).
Comparison of Changes in Biochemical Markers for Skeletal Muscles, Hepatic Metabolism, and Renal Function after Three Types of Long-distance Running
TLDR
Muscular damage, decline in hepatic function, and hemolysis in the blood were higher after running a 308”km race, which is low-intensity running compared with a marathon, and a temporary decline in renal function was higher after completing a 100 km race which is medium-to-high intensity.

Physiologic and biochemical changes during a triathlon competition.
TLDR
The general conclusion is that the physiologic demand of the triathlon exceeds that of other comparable endurance events.
Hematologic and Biochemical Laboratory Parameters Before and After a Marathon Race
TLDR
Exercise performance, as expressed by peak %VO2, continued to be decreased in marathon runners 3 days after the race, and the blood cell count and biochemical parameters did not differ significantly but many marathon runners were outside the standard reference rates.
Short-term immobilization after eccentric exercise. Part II: creatine kinase and myoglobin.
TLDR
Short-term immobilization after eccentric exercise blunted the CK response but not the Mb response, suggesting lymphatic transport of CK may be responsible.
Effect of exercise on plasma pyruvate kinase and creatine kinase activity.
Acute blood biochemical alterations in response to marathon running
TLDR
Altering in adrenalsympathico function were indicated by increased levels of cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine and water and electrolyte balance was not sufficient to maintain body weight, the runners losing approximately 2.8 kg.
Release of muscle proteins after downhill running in male and female subjects
TLDR
It is concluded that there are no significant differences in the basal concentrations of predominantly bound proteins, and that there were no differences inThe relative muscle protein release between females and males before and after one bout of high‐intensive eccentric exercise.
Dehydration and serum biochemical changes in marathon runners
TLDR
Small but significant increases in both haematocrit and haemoglobin concentration occurred and serum potassium concentration showed no change, but the response was highly variable; serum sodium concentration increased in line with the decrease in plasma volume.
Large delayed plasma creatine kinase changes after stepping exercise
TLDR
It is suggested that eccentric contractions involved in this form of exercise result in some particular form of muscle damage which, in susceptible subjects, may initiate changes giving rise to a large delayed release of muscle enzymes.
Effect of marathon running on hematologic and biochemical laboratory parameters, including cardiac markers.
TLDR
The increase in WBC counts was due mainly to neutrophilia and monocytosis, with a relative decrease in circulating lymphocytes, consistent with an inflammatory reaction to tissue injury.

TLDR
The results are discussed with respect to the consideration that elevation of the respiration rate during exercise leads to production of more reactive oxygen species than the antioxidant systems can scavenge.
