At this point of the year a lot of you
would have been deep into your
marathon training with a number of
iconic events on the horizon. However,
this year there is more than the
wall to stop your progress.
With the coronavirus sweeping
the nation, Europe and the world,
a whole host of high profile
events have already been cancelled
Europe is closing its borders, large gatherings across whole swathes of the continent have been banned.
Things at home are following suit - social distancing is key, schools are closed. A number of running events
have already been postponed.
The 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon, which was due to take place on April 26, has been postponed until Sunday, October 4. However, to raise spirits, in this issue we
take a look at the magnificent Nicky Spinks and some of her more recent achievements in endurance running.
Facing an uphill struggle? Then we have some advice on why running up an incline is a good thing.
But don’t forget, you can still go out for a run if you keep your distance.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue of Running
