THE UNBELIEVABLE #SPIRITOFLONDON

ON A BLISTERINGLY HOT DAY, 40,000 RUNNERS TOOK ON 26.2 MILES IN OUR CAPITAL. IT WAS A RACE FOR SURVIVAL!

About Women’s Running

Get inspired to take your running off the beaten track, with the July issue of Women’s Running, on sale 31 May. From our beginner’s guide to ultrarunning (including a 16-week training plan), to the lowdown on all things vertical racing, this issue celebrates adventure in running – and shows you how you can get a piece of it. Don’t fear, though, that doesn’t have to mean transforming into an ultra-athlete, running ludicrous miles in remote locations. We’ll show you how simply taking your runs off road and embracing the great outdoors can shake up your routine – and add some soul to your running. And if you need some convincing, don’t miss our interview with cover star and off-road enthusiast Caroline McKay, who tells us why the life-affirming nature of trail running has got her totally hooked. This issue also features our spring Ultimate Race Guide, compiling the best 100 races taking place from July onwards this year, so you can start planning your next adventure …
