Thank you to those runners who responded to our survey for the 2010 Bull Run Run 50 Mile. The responses will be helpful as we plan next year's event. Additionally, you might find the responses interesting. A summary is below.
The VHTRC Board
We sent the survey to 338 participants in the event and received responses from 173 people for a 51% response rate. The responses are below.
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 had said, "We will make aggregate results public but will not make any specific response or comment 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 shown to those in management of BRR, 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.
