 Abstract 
Non-doping classified medicines are to a large extent used by athletes to treat injuries, cure illnessesand obtain a competitive edge. NSAIDS are frequently prescribed to athletes to suppress inflammationand pain, yet one in five athletes report adverse effects after such use.
Objective:
To examine thefrequency of NSAID use in adventure racing and specifically study whether the length of a race mayinfluence the extent of NSAID use. Further, the study also assesses the reasons for NSAID use andpossible adverse effects.
Method:
A cross-sectional study of two Swedish Multisport Cup races. 59racers participated in the study.
Result:
1 racer (1.7 %) used NSAID during one of the two races. A totalof 42.4 % (n=25) have occasionally used NSAIDs during or between races. 23.7 % (n=14) sometimesuse NSAIDs during races. 12.0 % (n=3) of the 25 athletes that sometimes use NSAIDs reported adverseeffects. Reasons for NSAID use were diverse. The most common reason was to reduce pain in generalduring longer races (n=8).
Conclusion:
Results show a clear difference in NSAID use between theshorter races studied here and the longer previously studied adventure race, with NSAID use beingmuch more common in the latter (1.7 % vs. 30 %). NSAID use in longer races is at approximately thesame level as NSAID use in other endurance events. Based on the reasons for NSAID use stated in thisstudy, it is clear that athletes have a very limited knowledge and awareness regarding effects,indications for use, and possible adverse effects of the medicine.
