Ultrarunning Slow motion

Words Stacey McGowan Holloway

Perceived speed, or the lack of it, is a huge barrier for some runners, to the point that it can stop them even starting.

With heart-breaking headlines of slow runners being mistreated at the Virgin London Marathon, to runners finishing within advertised cut-offs to find finish lines packed up and toilets locked, are race directors doing enough?

About Women’s Running

Women’s Running is leaping into autumn with a new passion with the November issue. We uncover the best way to keep your running mojo fresh: pick a goal – any goal – and work towards it. From running a race to building strength, we unpick the best way to keep your feet on the path. We also embrace ultrarunning that anyone can do: slow ultrarunning! Cutting your speed is a filthy concept in other publications, but for us it’s a secret weapon in running further and longer than ever before. We talk to warrior Lowri Morgan who has a few ultramarathons under her belt, including the 350-mile Arctic Ultra (we didn’t ask how slow she ran, but she was the last person standing). Plus, we review all the latest shoes, the best running bras, jackets and reflective clothing for these shorter days. We also take a fond look at the incredible Flo-Jo: the passion, the fashion and the talent of a legendary runner.
