Us deixem l’abstract del treball presentat, titulat  Profiling participants of sporting events in the natural environment: trails running races.

Abstract: Currently no one discusses the increase of mountain races (Scheerder & Breedveld, 2015). There are two main reasons for this success: a) the increasing supply of sporting events (official and unofficial); b) the increasing demand of runners. Although there are no reliable data on this evolution, it is clear that their emergence and growth does not seem to be a punctual issue. As a result, it is necessary to develop research on the analysis, not only on the supply (growth, typology, main features, organizing bodies, etc.), but also on the demand (profile of runners, training, experience, motivations, etc.).The present work deals with the study of the profile and motivations, of the participants of sporting events in the natural environment, focusing on trail running races. The  survey has been designed, taking into consideration the inclusion of three dimensions: 1) socioeconomic profile, 2) sporting profile (sporting habits, experience, etc.), including different aspects considered in the corresponding studies of sports habit at the European level (European Commission, 2010) Spanish level (García Ferrando & Llopis, 2010) and Catalan level (Puig, Vilanova, Inglés & Mayo, 2009) and 3) motivations of participation (Farias, Segui, Fuster & Gil, 2014). The study was carried out in the trail race Ultra Trail Barcelona (Catalonia). The data used in the present study is based on a total of 140 on-site structured interviews distributed proportionally according to different distances categories: 21km, 42km and 69km. The main contribution of this work remains linked to the opening of a line of work on events in the natural environment, especially trail running races. The results are discussed in terms of their applicability and implications in the organization of this type of events.
