Bottom-up Theory of Life Satisfaction by Running Event Participants
In line with the bottom-up theory of life satisfaction, this study examined the quality of life of long and short-distance runners. Data were collected from a total of 1,676 runners in a running event. WHOQOL-BREF (26-item version of WHOQOL-100) was used to measure the quality of life of the runners. Results showed that event satisfaction has a statistically significant relationship only with physical wellbeing, which has a significant relationship with the overall quality of life. Thus, the bottom-up theory of life satisfaction was partially supported. The nature of the event was believed to be one of the reasons for the results.
