About Men's Running

Give your running a boost with the April issue of Men’s Running – our nutrition special. Whether you’re in need of a reliable mid-marathon energy gel, a pre-run pick-me-up or a recovery-boosting shake, this month’s Best in Test is your go-to guide for the best sports nutrition products on the market – as decided by our team of independent runners. Elsewhere, spring marathoners can take advice from our very own marathon man, Steve Way, who tells you exactly what you should be doing with two months to go. Or, if off-road is your thing, resident trail guru Matt Maynard’s ‘Trail Skills’ feature explains how to hone the skills you’ll need to excel when the going gets muddy. All that, plus the usual training advice, race reports and nutrition know-how to help you run stronger than ever this spring.
