About Women’s Running

We’re getting into marathon-training mode in the March issue of Women’s Running, out now! Join in our #BigMarathonChallenge with one of our three targeted 12-week training plans - you’ll find part one in this issue. We’ve also got an eight-move workout designed to get your body ready for marathon running. Using your commute to get some miles in? Find the right rucksack for you with our test. Elsewhere in the issue you’ll find a guide to running for new mothers, be inspired to smile as you run, and try three fresh recipes from Clean-Eating Alice. Plus, we’ve got all the usual great gear reviews, inspiration and quick training advice.
