On september 16th 2019, Ondrej Mitas, Lorraine van Liere and Ellis Middelkamp (researchers at BUas) contributed to the preliminary results in the second meeting for Run for Health, a project financially supported by the ERASMUS+ Sport Action. The meeting took place in the FC Utrecht stadium at Mulier Instituut together with the other European partners Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), Mulier Instituut (Netherlands), KU Leuven (Belgium), Lithuanian Sports University (Lithuania), ECOS (Italy) and the European Association of Sports Management.
The aim of the study is to show how running events can be used as a mean to promote health-enhancing physical activity. In the past months, data collection took place at some major running events in all participating countries, such as the BrandLoyalty Vestingloop Den Bosch and Marathon Amersfoort in the Netherlands. In the coming months, final analyses will be made and the final results will be presented at national and transnational conferences.
