About Women’s Running

The weather is glorious, which means it’s time to push our training to another level. This issue, we take on the ultra: and it turns out us mere mortals can take this on! If you can already run 5K (just 5K!) we’ve uncovered a training plan that will take you up to 50K in 30 weeks. We also speak to our inspirational cover star Kerry, on making the journey from non-runner to running coach, and all with a smile on her face. And we’ve got a bumper review section this month, from bras for big boobs to the latest running shoes from all the top brands. Our big issue this month is equality: the more we run, the more we discover inequality in running – different distances and prize money for women (and by ‘different’ we don’t mean better…), and certainly different treatment. Pick up our June issue to discover what’s going on behind the scenes, and how we can work together to bridge the gender running gap.
