10-12 NOVEMBER 2017

Light up your life with this glowrious event. Wear your brightest neon, grab the glowsticks and get ready to for a very fun 5K. Helix Park is home to the Kelpies, 30-metre horses which are the largest sculptures in the world, so you’re in for a treat.

THE COLOR RUN, NATIONWIDE

VARIOUS DATES

Billed as ‘the happiest 5K on the planet’, the concept is fun and simple: wear white to the start line and get doused in coloured powder as you run. The race is untimed, as the emphasis is on having a good time, not running a good time. So if you’d like a 5K with a big splash of colour and no pressure, this is it.

2 JULY 2017

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.
