Résumé
Context: A growing amount of recent research in sport psychology has focused on
trying to understand withdrawals from ultra-races. However, according to the Four E approach,
the studies underestimated the embedded components of these experiences and particularly how
they were linked to the specific environmental conditions in which the experiences occurred.
Objective: This study aimed to characterize trail running withdrawals in relationship to race
topography. Design: Qualitative design, involving self-confrontation interviews and use of a race
map. Setting: Use of the race map for description of the race activity and self-confrontation interviews
took place 1–3 days after the races. Participants: Ten runners who withdrew during an ultra-trail
race. Data Collection and Analysis: Data on past activity traces and experiences were elicited from
self-confrontation interviews. Data were coded and compared to identify common sequences and
then each type of sequence was counted with regard to race topography. Results: Results showed
that each sequence was related to runners’ particular possibilities for acting, feeling, and thinking,
which were in turn embedded in the race topography. These sequences allowed the unfolding
of the activity and increased its overall effectiveness in relation to the constraints of this specific
sport. Conclusion: This study allowed us to highlight important information on how ultra-trail
runners manage their races in relationship to the race environment and more specifically to its
topography. The result will also help us to recommend potential adjustments to ultra-trail runners’
performance-oriented training and preparation.
