About Women’s Running

Ever thought about how your favourite hobby might impact the environment? Grab yourself the May issue of Women’s Running, to find out more about your carbon running footprint – and how you can reduce it. With advice on everything from the best ethical running kit, to making your own drinks and fuel, to starting run-commuting, you’ll find an abundance of ideas on how to become a more eco-conscious runner. And you won’t be short of inspiration. Read how cover star Lizzie Carr transformed from a high-flying city girl to a passionate environmentalist and adventurer, and how contributing editor Claire Chamberlain managed to beat her 10K PB, after transitioning to a vegan diet. As ever, you’ll find the usual training advice, including the lowdown on all things tapering, and regular Best in Test gear reviews – this month, WR testers have reviewed the latest minimal, neutral and support shoes, so grab yourself a copy to find out which shoes came out on top!
