Participate in Triathlon Research Study

Dear Triathlete:

You are invited to participate in a research study of the
characteristics and motives of those who participate in triathlons.
The goal of the research is to understand better those who participate
in this demanding activity. If you agree to be part of the research
study, you will complete an anonymous survey on the Internet at

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KKZ9STG

By completing this survey, you are confirming that you are an adult at
least 18 years of age, that you have finished at least one
USAT-sanctioned triathlon, and that you are answering these questions
voluntarily. The survey should take less than 30 minutes of your time.
There are no risks or discomforts associated with your participation.
You may cease your participation at any time without penalty. Your
answers are anonymous and will be analyzed only for the survey sample
as a whole. Results will be available upon your request.

If you have any questions about this research study, you may contact
Christopher Peterson, Department of Psychology, University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1043; 734-764-6567; [email protected].

If you wish to participate in the study, please go to

Thank you.

    How much do we get paid for 30 minutes of our time. I could do a 15 miles training cycle in that time.
  • Sorry, no budget to pay you for your time, but I doubt it will really take you 30 minutes ... most people take 10 - 15 minutes.

    Well Kathy

    Two things come to mind here.....

    Your asking people to confirm they have taken part in an USAT tri when I can bet that 90% of forum users here haven't...since most people are UK based....

    Also would it be better to contribute to the forum before posting stuff like this???
  • I am sorry and understand if you think it isn't appropriate to post this on your forum. I also should of done more research and known that this was a UK based group! I am though a member of the Ann Arbor Triathlon Club in MI. I have posted this probably on 100 forum's do get a diverse cross section that represents a variety of triathletes. Once again sorry for my mistake.

    kathy... I wouldn't worry.

    Just cos its a UK based forum doesn't mean that SOMEBODY hear mightn't fit the bill. people here do race all over the world... maybe not LOADS but certainly a few.

    At least you weren't trying to sell counterfeit bags, shoes or sex aids!

    Nice response Didds,

    100%-90% = 10%....... does that equate to a few? Perhaps.

    Point was she may not get the a decent response to her survey from here.
