REALITY CZECH

DESPITE NO TRAINING AND A SLOW RACE, GRAHAM WILLIAMS FINDS FANTASTIC LOCAL SUPPORT, SEAMLESS ORGANISATION AND BEERS APLENTY AT THE KARLO VYVARY HALF MARATHON

KARLOVY VARY HALF MARATHON

A grinning Graham gets ready to Czech out the Karlovy Vary Half

Karlovy Vary, a small Czech town hugging the forested banks of the Teplá River, was put on the map in 1349 when, legend has it, the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV was stag hunting in the nearby forests and one of his hounds discovered a natural hot spring – by falling into it.

About Men's Running

The August issue of Men’s Running is all about running happy. As a runner, it can be easy to lose track of exactly why it is you run; it’s all too easy to get swamped by target times and the pressure to perform. Our feature on Running and Happiness looks at the many reasons we lace up our trainers – and attempts to reinforce the one overriding aim we all should have: to find a greater sense of joy. Elsewhere, the weird and wonderful world of racing is exemplified by the Beer Lovers’ Marathon: 26.2 miles of booze-fuelled fun. And, in a unique take on Baz Luhrmann’s 90’s hit ‘Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen’, resident ultra pro Robbie Britton has a heap of advice for would-be long-distance dons. Happy running!
