The people, campaigns, research and updates making an impact in our running community this month


The talented runner and tireless fundraiser has died at just 32

Gabriele ‘Gabe’ Grunewald died in June, aged 32. She was a professional US middle-distance runner, and achieved considerable highlights during her career. She finished 4th at the 2012 USA Olympic Trials, and won a USA Championship title in the indoor 3000 metres in 2014. Her PB in the 1500 metres is 4:01.48, making her the 11th fastest runner in US history.

Gabe had been originally diagnosed with cancer in 2009. While undergoing treatment, she continued pushing herself in the running arena, proving herself a global inspiration in so doing. She set up the not for profit organisation Brave Like Gabe to raise funds and awareness for rare cancer research, and to empower cancer survivors to live active lives. As part of which, she set up an annual race, the Brave Like Gabe 5K.

About Women’s Running

Sometimes a new bit of shiny kit is the one thing that motivates us to head outdoors and do that mid-week run. Sometimes, however, that new bit of shiny kit stays firmly in the drawer. It was cheap, it doesn’t fit that well, it was an impulse buy – our excuses are endless. But there is no excuse. The climate emergency is well and truly upon us, and it is up to us to start making a real difference, and one big way we can do that is by holding off on buying more kit that we don’t need, or buying kit that makes a positive difference. This issue, we reflect on the impact our sport has on the environment and how we can all make a difference. Elsewhere, we’re talking trails: our resident trail runner Damian Hall explains just what’s so great about leaving the tarmac behind – and how it can prevent that niggling injury from ever returning. We also explore how Reiki can transform your running, how to feed the runners in your family as well as the ankle-biters, and we interview Marina – who cheerfully "beat a bunch of blokes” in the Wadi Rum Ultra, when she coasted in third overall.
