Abstract

This study is framed within a doctoral thesis whose goal is to determine the social-demographic and sport profile of the spanish participants in raid competitions. The chosen sample corresponds to the population participating in L.E.D.A 2004 by selecting four challenges. The work design is no experimental, descriptive and seccional. The technique used to obtain the data sample is the survey and the applied questionnaire our working tool, while briefing before each competition. For the correlation of variables we have used the Spearman rho-parameter and Crombach alpha-parameter. To obtain the results we have applied to our variables descriptive statistics. As a result we can assure that the profile corresponds with men between 26 and 30 years old, single either working or teaching physical education. They hold universitary studies, belong to a sport club and compete at a national level. The favourite discipline is ATB and orientation, training daily, all disciplines for more than two months both, indoor and outdoor.
