Longitudinal Changes in Male Distance Running Performance -- 2001 to 2017

This study explores performance trends (2001-2017) in distance running for men using IAAF data for the distance events at the individual and country level, and examines how performance was associated with age, order of finish, time of year of the event, and location of the event. Attendees will learn to compare running performance across distance events, identify trends in performance by individuals and nations over time, and explain how longitudinal analysis can be used to examine how covariates are associated with performance.
