Abstract: Multisport endurance events are gaining in popularity and athletes from various levels of performance get involved in these strenuous athletic challenges. Some will choose to participate just for fun, while others will try their best to reach the highest levels of performance. Optimal weight management is of particular importance among elite athletes involved in multisport endurance events. However, the prevalence and magnitude of concerns about food and body weight in non-elite multisport endurance athletes is unknown. The objective of this project was to evaluate the prevalence of disordered eating and its association with performance among non-elite athletes involved in multisport endurance summer and winter events. These findings suggest that the prevalence of self-reported symptoms and concerns about food and body image is low among non-elite multisport endurance athletes. However, greater concerns regarding food intake and body weight may be associated with poorer performance even among athletes with normal BMI values in this group of non-elite athletes.
