Whatever your level, getting out under your own steam is really rewarding. Running is currently enjoying a surge in popularity, with as many as 10.5 million of us Brit’s getting the kilometres under our belt with applications for the London Marathon also at an all time high.
Running doesn’t just offer the social aspect of getting out with a friend or helping raise money for charity, as it also comes with a host of health benefits.
