About Women’s Running

The November issue of Women’s Running comes with a FREE magazine! Women’s Running Real-Life Runners is packed with inspiring stories from real women who have discovered the joy of running and overcome incredible obstacles to do so. In the main magazine, it’s our Reader’s Choice Awards issue, in which we celebrate the brands and races that you voted for in your thousands – find out who won! We also test all the latest and best winter running gear, from shoes to gloves, so you can pick the right kit for these chilly mornings. We have a training plan you can do even if you’re injured, we talk to cover star sisters Connie & Stacey about their half marathon training, and we explain how you can love every single winter run. Even the really dark, really rainy ones. Seriously. Let’s get out there!
