^{a}mean differences between finishers and nonfinishers are significant. t0: at start of TEFR09, t1: stage 5 to 12 (317–789 km), t2: stage 15 to 24 (1,003 to 1,635 km). F, finishers; ITT, ttest for independent samples; MI, magnetic imaging; NF, nonfinishers; SAST, somatic adipose soft tissue; SLT, somatic lean tissue; TAT, total adipose tissue; TERF09, Transeurope Footrace 2009; TLT, total lean tissue; TSV, total somatic volume; TVV, total visceral volume; VAT, visceral adipose tissue; VLT, visceral lean tissue.
 Bold numbers mark significant Pvalues.
