Running is a popular recreational sport, yet for many amateur runners it remains challenging to turn intentions into sustainable running behavior. Although the market offers a myriad of running-related devices that aim to motivate runners, these often focus on the training itself and not on overcoming the barriers experienced prior to the run. A better understanding of these barriers to running is essential to identify design opportunities for technologies supporting amateur runners. We conducted two complementary studies among participants of a women-only running event. Combining an online survey (N = 114) and a journey mapping activity (N = 13), we investigated the influence of motivational barriers and enablers in runners' rituals. Based on our findings, we created the Runner's Journey, a visual narrative highlighting actionable design opportunities for running motivation technology. We propose five design recommendations to overcome barriers among amateur runners. © 2020 ACM. [less ▲]

The popularity of recreational sports such as running, has increased substantially due to its low threshold to start and it is attractive for a wide range of people. However, despite the growing popularity, running has a high drop-out rate due to injuries and motivational loss, especially among novice runners. To investigate factors influencing motivation among novice runners and design opportunities, we deployed an empathy probe at a women-only running event. Faye is a running shirt that reveals motivational feedback on the shirt, during the warm-up phase of the run. In this paper, we both inform on the impact of motivational feedback while warming up on running motivation and reflect on the use of an empathy probe to investigate motivational strategies among novice runners. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
