Research Participants for Triathlon Study


Contact: Lindsay Greer       Email


The Centre for Social Science Research as a constituent centre of the Institute for Sustainable Regional Development and in conjunction with the Triathlon Research Initiative is presently conducting a major research project into identity formation, body politics and the Ultra-Distance Triathlon.


As a major component of this project the researchers wish to trial an innovative research methodology using E-mail technology. The sport of Ultra-Distance Triathlon would appear to be particularly suitable for this methodology, as participants in the sport are geographically dispersed and are, in general, technology friendly.


Research Participants would be asked to reply once a fortnight to approximately five questions via E-mail. The participants would be able to reply at a time convenient to their training schedule and in as much detail as they are comfortable with. The research project will commence late May 2000 and continue until September 2000.


Participant rights: Participants in this project are involved on a voluntary basis and are free to withdraw from participating at any time without giving a reason. This means you can withdraw permission for the information you have given to be used, even after correspondence has taken place. We, the researchers agree to maintain strict confidentiality at all times in dealing with the information you give us. Lindsay and Geoffrey would also like to encourage feedback on the procedure as well as the outcomes of the research.
