The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of distance running on sedentary middle-aged adults with idiopathic hypertension through quantitative, objective measurements. It is hypothesized that the 5000-meter participants would have the greatest reductions in blood pressure due to evidence that more aerobic activity has a high correlation with decreased blood pressure in hypertensive individuals.
