摘要

This study aims to confirm a structural model of serious leisure traits, constraints, involvement, and resultant participation with a sample of triathletes in Taiwan. Questionnaires were collected from 371 triathlon participants in the 2015 Ironman 70.3 Taiwan. The findings confirmed the antecedent role of serious leisure traits in the constraint–involvement relationship. In particular, serious leisure traits exerted a positive influence on sport participation through constraints and involvement, and sport constraints and involvement fully mediated between serious leisure traits and sport participation. The results show that triathletes with stronger serious leisure traits participated more frequently in daily training, finished longer distances in the event, and had spent more years as triathletes due to their low perceived constraints and high sport involvement. Based on these findings, several managerial implications for triathlon event organisers and governing bodies are discussed.
