ALMOND, APRICOT AND CHOCOLATE CHIP ENERGY BARS

About Men's Running

New to running? The February issue of Men’s Running is tailor-made for you. If, like many, your decision to dust the cobwebs off your trainers was driven by Christmas guilt, then signing up to a race, several months down the line, is an excellent way to keep that new-year motivation running high. And for that, our Ultimate Race Guide is a good place to start. Featuring 100 of the UK’s – and indeed the world’s – premier running events, you’re guaranteed to find a race that takes your fancy. And here’s hoping it will mark the start of a long and event-full running journey. It's not all about racing, of course, as proved by MR debutant Matt Buck, who embarked on a self-supported run along Portugal's stunning and appropriately named Historical Way. And of course there’s the usual blend of seasonal training advice, exclusive reviews, witty race reports and nutrition know-how – all of which, we hope, can help you make 2018 your best running year yet.
