Welcome to Vol 1 Iss 3 Running Forum It’s the place where the industry and the running community meet.
Congratulations to those of you who took part in the Virgin Money London Marathon. At the time of writing the race is a couple of days away but I hope that you achieved your goals and maybe a PB. However, just completing the distance is an achievement in itself no matter what your time.
And if you didn’t take part were you inspired to pull on your running shoes and set yourself a target for next year? If you’re looking for something a little bit more extreme then there could be something to inspire you in this issue of Running Forum. For instance, read about the inspiring story of Jasmin Paris, who became the first-ever woman to win the UK’s 268-mile Spine Race outright.
And if you want to be a little bit more exotic then find out about the Ultra X series, which is aiming to be the first multi-day ultra-marathon series of its kind, staged in deserts, jungles and mountains around the world.
But, coming back down to basics, also find out why you should be wearing a technical running sock.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue of Running Forum.
