Whether you’re planning your first marathon, or are after a new pair of racers, the best person to ask for a recommendation is undoubtedly a fellow runner – in such instances, a seasoned marathoner, or the owner of those shoes you’ve got your eye on, should be your first port of call. That’s why this year we’ve asked our readers to cast their votes on everything from their favourite races to their favourite running accessory, giving you access to the opinions of an even bigger community of runners than you might ordinarily have chatted to.

In fact, 24,000 runners voted in our inaugural Reader Awards, hosted across our online platforms. The nominees with the most votes have been awarded the product/brand/ race/influencer/club ‘of the year’, the runners up awarded ‘highly commended’ and those placed third ‘commended’.

About Men's Running

Discover the best running gear of 2017 with the December issue of Men’s Running. In our annual Men's Running Awards, our team of real runners has tried and tested over 1,000 products to give you an impartial guide to the very best shoes, kit, tech and nutrition of 2017. We're not just helping to fill out your Christmas lists, though; this issue, we sent writer Matt Maynard to the wild forests of Sweden to find out, among other things, what it's like to run with wolves. Hopefully it inspires you to set out on your own running adventure, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life – deadly animals optional. Elsewhere, regular contributors Steve Way and Rob Kemp both turn their attentions to the subject of staying fit while injured. The impact nature of our sport means we’re all destined for at least a brief spell on the sidelines, but it's what you do during your injury lay-off that determines how quickly you can get back into the swing of things. All that, plus the usual run-boosting advice, inspiration and race reports in the December issue of Men's Running.
