     This research analyzes the impact of COVID-19 on runners' lifestyles, physical activity, and participation in running competitions. Data was collected through a survey of 1196 people who registered on portals for online running events. Three areas were analyzed: COVID-19’s impact on lifestyles showed an increase in telecommuting, a reduction in traveling, and a reduction in dining out. COVID-19's impact on physical activity showed a decrease in exercise, an increase in health awareness, and an increase in the use of masks during running. COVID-19's impact on running competitions showed a decrease in the number of in-person running competitions held and an increase in participation in online running competitions. Respondents cited motivation as the primary reason for participation in these online running competitions. Finally, respondents provided feedback on how to improve online competitions by incorporating such practices as having runners completing the online competitions at the physical location of the competition.

     The number of foreign research papers on sport management has increased significantly in recent years. Therefore, in order to revitalize sport management research in Japan, understanding research trends overseas is important. We aimed to examine ways to promote sport management research in Japan through a bibliometric analysis of articles published in major domestic and international academic journals. Data were collected on bibliographic information (e.g., year of publication, author, and author's institutional affiliation) of articles published in five major national and international sport management journals during the period from 2000-2020. The analysis revealed that research productivity is high in countries such as the U.S., Australia, Canada, the U.K., and Germany. The analysis also revealed that the number of coauthored papers in international journals is increasing. The results of this study are used to suggest measures that may be effective for promoting collaborative research, especially within academic organizations.
