About Men's Running

Here comes the sun! And with it, lots of blokes in shorts too short and vests too tight. The sunshine will, inevitably, be gone in a flash, but that’s not to say you shouldn’t capitalise on your renewed sunny disposition by, say, signing yourself up to one of the 100 events featured in this issue's Ultimate Race Guide – featuring 5Ks, ultramarathons and everything in-between. Elsewhere, urban-running contributor Scott Cain looks at the need for all runners – particularly in big cities – to take note of their local air quality; Jim Old meets a man who, fresh from completing the 'triple seven', has had quite the week; Michael Donlevy explores the link between pre-race nerves and increased risk of injury; and Simon Ward looks at the all-abilities-welcome approach of the modern running club. All that, plus the usual training tips, kit reviews, race reports and running news in your July issue of Men’s Running
