Women's Running won big at the PPA Independent Publishing Awards last week

Women’s Running bagged two awards at the annual PPA Independent Publishing Awards on Friday 26 November, despite hundreds of entries and some tough competition.

After being shortlisted for the second year in a row, we took home Podcast of the Year for our weekly Women’s Running podcast. The judges highlighted a “great balance of insightful tips and interesting conversations, combining lots of practical advice with interviews that are entertaining and relatable”.

The strong listening figures, as well as the interaction with listeners, was also mentioned by the judges: a reminder that the podcast wouldn’t be in this position without a wonderful community of runners listening in. Esther and Holly were utterly thrilled to be there in person to receive the award on behalf of the whole team.

We were also honoured to receive the Diversity & Inclusion Award 2021 for our work to make the running community a more inclusive space.

“Women’s Running not only provides a platform for people to share their diverse experiences and stories,” said the panel of judges, “but also actively encourages the brands they work with to live up to their expectations, so that over time diverse and inclusive content is nothing out of the ordinary.”

It’s really important to us that all women feel empowered to run and can see themselves represented in this community, and this award only serves to remind us that we need to keep working hard to support our readers and listeners.

Thank you to the PPA team for a wonderful day celebrating so much hard work and congratulations to everyone who was shortlisted, including our sister title Vegan Food & Living.
