Researchers at Federation University Australia are conducting a study into the relationship between travel and health/fitness. Specifically, the project will focus on how parkrunners perceive their health and fitness and whether their interest extends to how they make tourism decisions.

 

Participation in the survey involves responding to a series of questions regarding the choices you make concerning health and fitness in general as well as when travelling away from home.The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous.
