WHAT DOES BREXIT MEAN FOR RUNNERS?

How will Britain’s impending departure from the European Union affect running from an elite to amateur level? Michael Donlevy investigates

It’s been a summer of contrasts for Great Britain. In June, the EU referendum split the country, turning friends and even families against each other on an unprecedented scale, inciting an increase in racism and even causing a spike in reports of depression and mental health issues. Yet just weeks later, Team GB’s performance at the Olympics in Rio reunited the nation – however briefly – as sport replaced politics on the front pages.

Sporting success at any level, though, requires investment – of money, time and effort – and the current economic turbulence will have an impact on both a personal and a national level.

Let’s start with elite sport. There can be no doubt that Mo Farah, whatever he goes on to achieve on the track at next year’s World Championships or beyond, is approaching the twilight of his career. But what of the next generation of young British athletes who are hoping to emulate his success at future Olympics?

About Men's Running

The temperature may be dropping but, unlike bears and bats, real runners don’t hibernate. Quite the opposite. The autumn and winter months are, in fact, when the fun begins. To inspire you to take the season by storm, this issue is packed full of adventure-aiding advice. And the good news is, you don’t have to travel far to find it. You could, for example, try your hand at some local fastpacking. (That’s the hybrid of running and backpacking, by the way, not hurriedly cramming your belongings into a suitcase.) For the price of a cheap train ticket, ultrarunner Matt Maynard fastpacked his way along the 153-mile North Downs Way, chopping his toothbrush in half in a bid to cut down any extra weight. On page 52, he tells you all you need to know about the art of travelling fast and light. Speaking of fast and light, we caught up with two Olympians who embody both those qualities: new 400m world record holder Wayde Van Niekerk and rising star of British marathon running Callum Hawkins. Although they specialise in very different disciplines, they both have some lessons for us mere mortals. A lesson that many runners – including this one – have failed to grasp, is the art of the B race. Getting these warm-up races right can be a great launch pad to success, while getting them wrong can be a real confidence-crusher. On page 60, Damian Hall tells you how to strike a balance. So embrace the colder months and enjoy this issue – it’s a brrr-illiant one.
