Thank you to those who participated in our survey of runners in the 2010 Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Miler. Here is a report of the results.
We sent a request to participate in the survey to the 170 starters in the 2010 MMT. We received responses from 119 or 70% of the runners.
For each question, there was a required response and an optional comment box. Where the required response was a rating of 1 to 5, we have listed the average rating. Where the required response was unique to the specific question, we have listed the number and percentage of votes for each option.
We have provided a summary of the statements in the comment boxes. To encourage candid responses, we do not make specific comments public. We have tried to summarize the responses fairly, but don't claim that we did that perfectly.
All of the raw data has been (or will be) shown to those in management of MMT, the VHTRC board, and the race directors of the other two VHTRC events. (As we noted in the survey, no version of the data connects a respondent's name with any response.) If you responded to the survey, your opinion has been heard.
If you have any question about the survey, or have any further comment, you may e-mail the VHTRC president, Alan Gowen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
