About Men's Running

The August issue of Men’s Running is all about running happy. As a runner, it can be easy to lose track of exactly why it is you run; it’s all too easy to get swamped by target times and the pressure to perform. Our feature on Running and Happiness looks at the many reasons we lace up our trainers – and attempts to reinforce the one overriding aim we all should have: to find a greater sense of joy. Elsewhere, the weird and wonderful world of racing is exemplified by the Beer Lovers’ Marathon: 26.2 miles of booze-fuelled fun. And, in a unique take on Baz Luhrmann’s 90’s hit ‘Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen’, resident ultra pro Robbie Britton has a heap of advice for would-be long-distance dons. Happy running!
