Subject: Triathlon Research
We are recruiting triathletes who raced or planned to race at least one triathlon during the 2022 season. We aim to identify injury epidemiology and motivations that led to continued training/racing while injured. You will specifically be asked to recall information about your 2022 triathlon season, including racing history and injuries. You will also be asked questions related to your support network for triathlon and your beliefs about training and racing while injured. It is important that you complete this survey whether you sustained an injury or not. You must be at least 18 years old and be able to read and understand English to complete this survey.
Your choice to participate in this study is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate in this study, your responses will not be linked back to you in any way. The survey will be open for a one-month period with a reminder being sent after two weeks.
This study has been approved by The University of Southern Mississippi’s IRB, protocol #22-1487. If you have any questions about this study before you decide to participate, please do not hesitate to ask. We hope you will consider participating in this study and appreciate your consideration!
