Gender Differences in Mental Toughness and Coping with Injury in Runners

The aim of this study was to examine differences in Mental Toughness (MT) and coping with injury between male and female runners at different levels of experience.478 runners were categorized into beginners (n=47), intermediate (n=294) and advanced (n=137). All participants had sustained an injury during their running career. The present study utilized Survey Monkey™, which is an online survey collection service. Participants completed two questionnaires – the Psychological performance inventory (PPI-A) which measured MT and the Coping Inventory for Competitive Sport (CICS), which measured task, distancing and disengagement coping strategies.
