THE SILVER CITY WITH THE GOLDEN SANDS

AFTER A SPARKLING DEBUT IN 2017, THE SIMPLYHEALTH GREAT ABERDEEN RUN WILL RETURN TO THE SILVER CITY FOR A SECOND YEAR, PROMISING THE SAME STUNNING VIEWS AND SPECTATOR SUPPORT

SIMPLYHEALTH GREAT ABERDEEN RUN

The inaugural Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run quite literally shut down the city of Aberdeen last summer, as thousands of people took on a 10K or half marathon in aid of fundraising, fitness and fun.

Thousands of runners took part, all with their own personal story to tell and even more spectators lined the streets in support.

The event will return on Sunday 26 August, so this is your chance to experience first-hand what the Granite City has to offer.

About Women’s Running

It’s a strange thing, our relationship with food. We tuck into our favourite snacks and meals to reward ourselves, cheer ourselves up and celebrate special occasions. Mealtimes can be something to look forward to after a tough day or training session, an opportunity to share quality time with loved ones. For me, food is associated with homeliness and family, but also with health and wellbeing. Fuelling my body nutritiously gives me enormous satisfaction – it gives me a feeling of control, knowing I’m supporting my health and my running. But because of such emotional associations, our relationship with food can become very complex. And, in some cases, even detrimental to health. Over the coming pages, we look at a number of topics surrounding nutrition. From the highly emotive issue of eating disorders (page 30), to the growing trend of going meat-free (page 62), we give you the facts to help you make sense of how your diet impacts your training and heath – mental and physical. If you are moving to a vegetarian or vegan diet, you’ll find heaps of expert advice on everything from getting the right protein intake to vitamin and mineral deficiencies – and even a seven-day, meat-free meal planner (page 69). Of course, there’s lots of non-food content, too, including one feature guaranteed to get you out the door, even for just 15 minutes (page 44).
