Purpose: To deeply depict and interpret the phenomena of outdoor recreational sport for recreational triathletes’ experiences of competition-finishing process through linking personal experience, past researches and other participants’ point of views. Methods: Qualitative approach was taken to achieve the research purpose. Data were continually collected by the methods of “in-depth interview” and “focus group interview” and then analyzed to generalize results. Results: For recreational triathlon participants’ experiences of competition-finishing process were concluded for four stages, including: “decide to register”, “prepare seriously before competition”, “keep moving forward” and “victory in the finishing line”. Conclusions: A model of recreational triathletes’ experiences of competition-finishing process generalized by this research could act as foundation for constructing future large-scale model as well as reference for promoting sport participation.
