Running repairs

Even the most rudimentary first aid skills can make a massive difference in an emergency – whether it’s yours or somebody else’s

KNOWLEDGE

One of the best things about running is the way it embraces athletes of all levels, abilities and ages. However, such an open-door policy can result in an increase in the chances of injury and ill health in participants, whether due to lack of physical fitness, a pre-existing injury or an undiagnosed medical condition. That is why the British Red Cross has launched the #UpYourGame campaign, targeting runners and event organisers to raise awareness and educate in effective, possibly life-saving first aid.

“We undertook a survey of runners to see how they would deal with accidents or emergencies when racing or training,” explains Tracey Taylor, First Aid Education Development Manager with the British Red Cross. Of the 912 regular runners questioned, over half (58%) said they would not have the confidence to help their running partners in a first aid emergency. “We found that 90% of runners surveyed said they would like to learn first aid or improve their first aid knowledge,” adds Taylor.

About Men's Running

Motivational mantras, preferably overlaid onto a picture of a runner in a dramatic landscape, are ubiquitous on social media. That isn’t to say they don’t have their uses: I have a couple of things I mutter to myself when the going gets tough although they’re unsuitable for publication unfortunately. I don’t believe the no one-size-fits-all mantras work because every runner is unique and has their own motivations. This variety is reflected in the sheer breadth of organised events available to runners right now. Which is why we’ve curated a list of 100 race (page 57) from both the UK and abroad, that we feel represents the scope of running for the remainder of 2017. From 10Ks to ultras, from road to trail, there’s something here for the beginner, veteran or just anyone who wants to simply try something new. Speaking of races The Marathon des Sables has been given the sobriquet of ‘toughest race on the planet’ so we felt duty bound to find out for ourselves if this claim is true. Our runner’s report (page 34) tells us that while ability is obviously essential, being able to get along with and support your fellow runners is the most important attribute required. Of course not every run has to be a race and there’s still satisfaction to be found in creating your own running adventures (page 21) or building goals from the reams of data floating around out there (page 42). Again it’s down to what individual runners want from their sport. All running together but with different destinations.
