Running @home

Advice for all for running during these unprecedented times

As we all find ourselves responding to the challenge of spending more time at home and not being able to run as we would normally; England Athletics has expanded its campaign to support Athletics and Running for Everyone @home, with a focus here on ‘Running @home’ support and advice which is updated weekly.

Martin’s message of the week

It’s been fascinating to read the Runderwear bra survey. Kit is always hugely important when it comes to athletic performance; but probably we tend to forget that. Well, here’s proof that shouldn’t be the case. It pays to take close attention to your running clothing and not just for looks. Comfort in sports clothing equals improved performance.

Talking of performance, congratulations to all of you who took part in our virtual 5km championships. It proved hugely popular and produced some amazing performances at every level in every age group. Certainly, it confirms plenty of us have been training hard in lockdown. It’s going to be really exciting when it all starts up again soon.
