Introduction: Heart fatty acid binding protein (h-FABP) is considered a heart specific marker of necrosis, but it is also present in the skeletal muscles. The aim of the study is to check whether h-FABP plasma concentration increases in healthy subjects after exercise. Material and methods: Plasma h-FABP concentrations were measured in 16 healthy men and 3 healthy women (mean age 24) before and after their participation in the 11 kilometer-long marathon – XVI Independent Race in Warsaw by means of a point-of-care semi-quantitative test. Results: All 19 runners had a negative result of the pre-run h-FABP test (
