Who we are and what we do
Volunteer researchers dedicated to
studying and promoting running
The RunPoll website is the research portal for a group of social science PhDs who are passionate about running. We conduct and publish independent quantitative (survey) and qualitative (interview, focus group) research that increases understanding of the sport as a social, cultural and economic phenomenon.
Working with individual runners, clubs, institutions and event organisers, our goal is to boost participation and improve the experience of running for everyone who takes part.
