About Women’s Running

Get inspired to take your running off the beaten track, with the July issue of Women’s Running, on sale 31 May. From our beginner’s guide to ultrarunning (including a 16-week training plan), to the lowdown on all things vertical racing, this issue celebrates adventure in running – and shows you how you can get a piece of it.

We’ll show you how simply taking your runs off road and embracing the great outdoors can shake up your routine – and add some soul to your running.

This issue also features our spring Ultimate Race Guide, compiling the best 100 races taking place from July onwards this year, so you can start planning your next adventure …
