Thanks to social media, keeping pace with the world’s most inspiring runners has never been easier – as long as you know who to follow. Log on, subscribe, Like or have an old-fashioned read of this lot to remind yourself why you love lacing up your trainers



Ethan Newberry is the most prolific running-gear reviewer on YouTube, but forget that for a second. Ignore his breathless comparisons of wicking tops and dig into his ‘virtual runs’: a mixture of headcam and documentary-style footage of some of the world’s most beautiful routes and races. Sure, watching him trot along the verdant trails of the Gorge Waterfalls 100k or huff up the Sun Mountain 50-miler might grate a bit if you’re mostly relegated to plodding along pavement, but it might also remind you why you’re running in the first place, and convince you to sign up for a race that’s more about scenery than split-times. If nothing else, you’ll get some second-hand experience of some of the planet’s best running terrain.

About Men's Running

While the calendar may be full of organised races and events, not everyone’s running life is dictated by competition. Goals come in many different shapes and sizes and so does the impetus to achieve them. If this issue has a theme it’s that reasons to run go way beyond simply wanting to be involved in a sport. Take for example the five blokes who used their unwanted weight-gain as a spur to getting out and reclaiming their lives (p55). Not only did they turn their health around they also found out things about themselves they never would have without running. You can also find #runspiration from your environment, whether that be the mountainous trails of Austria (p60) or the streets outside your own front door (p34). Hitting the books (and tablets, phones and laptops) is also a good way to find running inspiration. So we’ve curated our own Men’s Running library of essential reading and watching (p42), meaning you can gen up on training tips and courageous stories, while also keeping tabs on the amazing feats being performed by the professionals. Speaking of which, with athletic titans such as Mo Farah and Scott Overall entering the twilight of their careers, we look at the next generation of UK runners (p66) who’ll be inspiring people to lace up their trainers and find themselves through running. All this plus our usual mix of races, kit, recipes and training tips.
