Reporting from the inaugural London 10 Mile, editor Isaac Williams finds it’s a tricky distance to get right

Tap your foot and wag your finger. Show some attitude. Now roar like a lion!” As the warm-up for the kid’s race reaches a crescendo of Fruit Shoot-fuelled excitement, the atmosphere at the start line for the main event is considerably less fun – where I’m stood at least.

The long, thin queue means I’m at the tail-end of hundreds of runners – and about 600m from the race announcer. The lack of speaker system this end means we can’t hear a thing, other than the odd round of applause for whatever local Richmond celebrity has been dragged on stage. This is the situation for a good 15 minutes, as myself and those around me twiddle our thumbs and stop our Garmins from falling asleep.

About Men's Running

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. A phrase, I’m sure, that can be applied to you and your running journey. At some point – many years ago or perhaps very recently – you decided to lace up your trainers for the very first time, step foot out the door, and go for a run. Whether it was for a school sports day, a New Year’s resolution or simple curiosity, you stepped out of your comfort zone and, presumably, liked what you discovered. This issue is all about pushing boundaries and stepping out – like that very first run – into the unknown. For Adharanand Finn, author of Running with the Kenyans, that meant a trip to California for his first ever ultramarathon: the Miwok 100K. Head to page 42 to find out how steel cups and flat Coke fit into his lessons learned from going ultra. At the sharper end of the field, the pros, too, have been attempting to step (really, really quickly) into the unknown – specifically, by trying to run a marathon in a frankly ridiculous sub-two-hour time. Nike’s recent, high-profile Breaking2 attempt saw Eliud Kipchoge fall agonisingly short with a time of 2:00:25, but what can we mortal runners learn from the event? Turn to page 48 to see how you, too, can maximise performance by echoing the project’s meticulous attention to detail – if not the millions of pounds of funding. Of course, inspiring stories, cutting-edge kit, training tips and nutrition advice also feature, in an issue made with motivation in mind.
