Inside the May issue of Women’s Running

Author: Holly Taylor

The May issue of Women's Running is out now! Here's what's in store...


In the May issue of Women’s Running we speak to women who have suffered from Covid to find out just how it affected them and their running, and find out what lessons they’ve learned, so that we can learn from them too. We also look into assisted running and how we can all offer assistance, and we hear from those that assist as well as the assisted to discover the mutual joy that it brings.

Don’t miss our interview with Ironman champion Alice Hector, who challenges our perception on age, or our deep dive into the world of wild swimming.

Plus, we’ve got the only 10K training plan you need, an 8-move workout with a focus on form, the runner’s supplement shortlist, lots of beautiful kit, tons of inspiration and all the training you need to get out there and enjoy your running.

Here are the highlights at a glance
