Tittel

Sleep recovery in participants after racing in the finnmarkslop - Europe's longest dog-sled race

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Finnmarksløpet is a dogsled race across the Finnmark plateau in Norway at 70o North, which takes up to seven days to complete. The sleep scheduling is set according to the race strategy, and consequently, the mushers and their support teams cannot sleep when they want to, and they must be active and alert at all times. Participants in competitions such as Finnmarksløpet, face demanding environmental conditions, and the strenuous effort and demanding sleep deprivations can have consequences on the participants’ health. An adequate sleep recovery is important after completion of the race, but the severe disruption of the sleep-wake patterns during the race can lead to sleep problems. Furthermore, lack of awareness and knowledge of the health hazard of sleep deprivation might lead to underestimate the importance of engaging in planned sleep recovery processes.

The purpose of this project is to investigate the sleep-wake patterns of mushers and members of the support teams over a month after completion of Finnmarksløpet, and understand the extent to which they are aware of having accumulated a sleep depth and whether they engage in some planned strategies to overcome it.

Metode

A total of 55 participants responded to an online survey 1 week and 1 month after the race; this measured the following factors: their awareness of sleep loss and possible strategies for recovery; their sleep–wake patterns using a Pittsburgh Sleep Questionnaire Index, and possible changes in respondents’ sleep–wake patterns compared with their regular routines.
