Looking for participants in a questionnare for my sports dissertation in ''Does Masters distance runners training affect their performances''. questionnaire .
Introduction letter, consent form and questionnaire are displayed in the ''Scottish Veteran Harriers Club'' website for volunteers to answer the relevent questions in the questionnare. To gather the information from volunteer masters runners. Towards the study of masters distance runners training and racing. The information sheet enclosed displays the relevent information in more detail.
This study could be very helpful for masters distance runners and club coaches in the foreseeable future. How past and present training and racing could give an insight how masters athletes could continue compete at a high level in masters competitions.
I will be very grateful to the Scottish Veteran Harriers Club to give me assistance in this study for my Honours degree in sports coaching. To my knowledge there has not been a study as detailed in individual masters distance runners.
Therefore, I have enclosed the relevant attachment form. (the athletes should not display their name or running club)
Yours Peter McGregor Victoria Park city of Glasgow.
