Mental Toughness Research Survey

Leona Beaumont from Chorlton Runners is doing an MSc in Psychology at Coventry University. She would like some volunteers from the club to do a survey on Mental Toughness. Details from Leona are below:

The aim of this study is to gain a greater insight into mental toughness in distance runners and how mental toughness may be more systematically developed within distance runners.  

I would ideally like to interview the participants in the next month.  The interviews will however be done at a convenient location for the runner and I don’t anticipate that they will take longer than 1 hour.     

All answers and results from the interviews will be kept strictly confidential and the results will be reported in a research paper available to all participants on completion.

If any of your running club members are prepared to take part in my study, then please ask them to email me at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  I can then liaise with them direct to arrange a suitable time for the interview.
