Participation in sport and exercise is at an all-time high with more people than ever now participating regularly in both. Interestingly, since the London 2012 Olympic games, sport and exercise participation has grown steadily across almost all sports, with running, cycling, football, swimming and golf being the frontrunners.
Outside of recreational sports, the interest and uptake of mass participation events like marathons, triathlons, duathlons, Spartan Runs and Tough Mudder for example has also risen sharply in recent years. Whether people are looking for new opportunities and challenges to stretch themselves physically, or to raise money for a good cause, the data suggests that the UK population quite literally has an appetite for sport and exercise.
