Please see the message below from Paddy Noon, a student at Marjon university:
Dear Newbury Athletic Club,
My name is Paddy Noon and I am a Master’s Sport and Exercise Psychology student at Plymouth Marjon University. I am contacting you to ask whether some of your club members (who participate in parkruns) would be interested in participating in a study that involves trying a psychological strategy.
I have created a brief video on a psychological strategy that aims to be useful for runners who participate in parkruns. I would like to get feedback on the video and its usefulness. Participating would involve watching a short video, providing parkrun details after four parkruns, and completing some brief surveys.
Would you mind distributing this email to members of your club? I will provide detailed information on participating to those who are interested.
If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to ask me, or feel free to contact my supervisor Dr Alister McCormick (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I look forward to hearing from you.
If anyone is interested in taking part in this study, Paddy’s e-mail address is: email@example.com.
I have made contact with Paddy’s supervisor and this is an officially-sanctioned university activity.
