PAUL O’HARE IS UP AT THE CRACK OF DAWN FOR THE SMALL MATTER OF RUNNING THE WORLD’S LARGEST MARATHON

It’s 4am in the city that never sleeps and my alarm is ringing. I’m used to getting up early on race days but this is a new record. In a little over eight hours from now, I hope to cross the start line in my dream run, the TCS New York City Marathon.

About Men's Running

New to running? The February issue of Men’s Running is tailor-made for you. If, like many, your decision to dust the cobwebs off your trainers was driven by Christmas guilt, then signing up to a race, several months down the line, is an excellent way to keep that new-year motivation running high. And for that, our Ultimate Race Guide is a good place to start. Featuring 100 of the UK’s – and indeed the world’s – premier running events, you’re guaranteed to find a race that takes your fancy. And here’s hoping it will mark the start of a long and event-full running journey. It's not all about racing, of course, as proved by MR debutant Matt Buck, who embarked on a self-supported run along Portugal's stunning and appropriately named Historical Way. And of course there’s the usual blend of seasonal training advice, exclusive reviews, witty race reports and nutrition know-how – all of which, we hope, can help you make 2018 your best running year yet.
