THE SHAPE WOMEN’S HALF MARATHON IN NEW YORK

Kate Couch took on the Big Apple, and brought her family along for the ride

Be inspired by reports on recent races by our intrepid runners: we go the distance!

Few races start with a Broadway star singing the national anthem, but such was the case at the Shape Women’s Half Marathon in New York. This annual women-only race is hosted by New York Road Runners and it is one of the largest all-female half marathons in the USA, which draws both runners and walkers.

The course is two laps of Central Park and it is relatively flat, with just one notable hill at the northern edge of the park. There is a generous time limit and a real sense of camaraderie, as women of all ages and backgrounds take part. Central Park is a great venue for young children to watch mummy racing, as race-day can coincide with a visit to Central Park Zoo.

About Women’s Running

The weather is glorious, which means it’s time to push our training to another level. This issue, we take on the ultra: and it turns out us mere mortals can take this on! If you can already run 5K (just 5K!) we’ve uncovered a training plan that will take you up to 50K in 30 weeks. We also speak to our inspirational cover star Kerry, on making the journey from non-runner to running coach, and all with a smile on her face. And we’ve got a bumper review section this month, from bras for big boobs to the latest running shoes from all the top brands. Our big issue this month is equality: the more we run, the more we discover inequality in running – different distances and prize money for women (and by ‘different’ we don’t mean better…), and certainly different treatment. Pick up our June issue to discover what’s going on behind the scenes, and how we can work together to bridge the gender running gap.
