I am deparately trying to find male Comrades runners for my study. Please could you help!

I am doing my Masters in Sports Physiotherapy and my research thesis concerns the performance of ultramarathon runners during the recovery period after an ultramarathon. I am using this years Comrades as the ultramarathon to be studied.

In order to conduct this research I need a group of runners participating in the Comrades( Experimental group) and a group of distance runners not running in the Comrades( control Group). I have compiled recruitment adverts for these runners which have been approved by UCT( the institution through which I will be doing my research).

I would also be quite happy to come and talk to those runners who are interested in participating in the study if they require more information. I have attatched these above.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact me.

Kind regards
