About Women’s Running

Sometimes a new bit of shiny kit is the one thing that motivates us to head outdoors and do that mid-week run. Sometimes, however, that new bit of shiny kit stays firmly in the drawer. It was cheap, it doesn’t fit that well, it was an impulse buy – our excuses are endless. But there is no excuse. The climate emergency is well and truly upon us, and it is up to us to start making a real difference, and one big way we can do that is by holding off on buying more kit that we don’t need, or buying kit that makes a positive difference. This issue, we reflect on the impact our sport has on the environment and how we can all make a difference. Elsewhere, we’re talking trails: our resident trail runner Damian Hall explains just what’s so great about leaving the tarmac behind – and how it can prevent that niggling injury from ever returning. We also explore how Reiki can transform your running, how to feed the runners in your family as well as the ankle-biters, and we interview Marina – who cheerfully "beat a bunch of blokes” in the Wadi Rum Ultra, when she coasted in third overall.
