(And I grossly simplified the answers here, please check out the full document to learn about the methodology how these answers came to be.)
What motivates you to do trail running:
Fascinating that the race focus wasn’t ranked higher!
Top shoes brands (globally!):
La Sportiva in 4th, and no Altra at all? Yes, Altra could be lumped into the Other category, but the survey breaks this down all the way to Sketchers with 0.6%… you’d think more folks would wear Altras than Sketchers?!
Which smartwatch do you have:
COROS has in a short period of time captured 8% of the global market, which is truly impressive.
Annual budget for trail running:
So, like on pair of Speedlands…
Do you have a coach?
Over 68% of runners don’t have a coach!
What type of injury do you have resulting from training?
No plantar fasciitis listed
How many races do you run in a year?
39% said 4-6 races a year with the favorite race distance being marathon to 50km.
There’s some cool nuggets of information in there. ITRA had over 9,500 folks responding to this survey.
