Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to conduct an online, securesurvey at the 2008 ING Georgia Marathon and Half-Marathon. This isbecause, to date, limited research exists on recreational aerobic endurancesport athletes regarding type 1 and type 2 diabetes.Methods: An online, secure survey in winter 2008 using PsychDatawas conducted. Previously validated questions from national surveyswere used.Results: Most participants (n=1,119, or 96.6% of total respondents,with complete data) were female and Caucasian. While five participantsreported physician-diagnosed type 1 diabetes, and none reportedphysician-diagnosed type 2 diabetes, 13% reported having risk factors fortype 2 diabetes.Conclusions: Improved awareness of and interventions to preventfuture diagnosis and complications of type 2 diabetes among adultsparticipating in recreational endurance physical activities are warranted.
