Abstract The associations among cardiorespiratory endurance (CRE), body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure (BP) in children are still unclear. This study aimed to examine the relationships among CRE, BMI and BP in Chinese children. Data were derived from the 2010 Chinese National Survey on Students’ Constitution and Health. An endurance run test was used to determine CRE and children were stratified into low and high/moderate CRE groups. BMI was dichotomized into non-overweight and overweight. Among overweight children aged 7–12 years, the risk of high BP (HBP) was significantly higher in the low CRE group than in the high/moderate CRE group (in boys, odds ratio=1.13, 95% confidence interval: 1.03–1.24, P=0.010; in girls, odds ratio=1.18, 95% confidence interval: 1.04–1.33, P=0.010) after adjusting for age, BMI, socioeconomic status and area of residence. However, among all children aged 13–18 years and non-overweight children aged 7–12 years, we did not observe similar results. Higher CRE is associated with lower BP. Overweight children have a significantly higher risk of HBP and low CRE may increase the risk of HBP, independently of BMI, among 7- to 12-year-old overweight children.
