q what do you like to listen to on the run?

‘Spotify’s Running Hits playlist, or the Running R&B/Hip-Hop playlist if I’m switching to beast mode!’– Philippa Turner‘I find music or podcasts distracting when I’m running. However, I was testing earphones one day and Louis Prima’s Buona Sera came on; I swear, I ran faster for several minutes. Perhaps there’s something to this music thing.’– John Carroll‘I run to get away from the tyranny of technology. No music, no wires, no watch.’– Rick ‘Caveman’ Pearson‘On my long Sunday runs I listen to random Spotify running playlists but when I stumble upon a tune that hits the spot I play it on repeat for the rest of the run.’– Kerry McCarthy‘My ideal soundtrack is the ambient noise of nature around me. (Though the reality is more often the din of the B519…

editor’s letter

RONNIE O’SULLIVAN is one of the high-profile runners we’ve wanted to feature in the magazine for years and I’m glad to say we finally got him – check out the interview with him on page 44. I’ve always found it fascinating that one of the best snooker players ever (the best, many would argue) is also a talented and committed runner, with a very impressive 10K PB of 34:54 and a race win on his running CV (fittingly, for a man nicknamed ‘The Rocket’). One of the things I’m always trying to convince my non-running friends of is that the benefits of running spread into other areas of your life. This is certainly true for Ronnie, who credits running with keeping the things that are important to him – family,…

westbury white horse, wiltshire

THE EXPERIENCE Salisbury Plain is home to some of the wildest trails to be found in this lovely part of Britain. Perfect for exploring on foot, this windswept escarpment is scattered with the remnants of a long and varied human history, from the replica East German village at Imber and the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge to Wiltshire’s famous white horses. The Imber Range Perimeter Path runs for 33 miles around a live firing range, taking in some of the remotest reaches of the plain. With plenty of intriguing sights and occasionally cryptic waymarking, it’s a real adventure of a run. RUNNER Jen Benson PHOTOGRAPHER Sim Benson ABOUT Jen & Sim Benson are runners and guidebook authors. RW readers can buy the fully updated 2019 edition of their book Wild Running, with a 30 per cent discount…

rage turner

A NEW STUDY has shown what your loved ones probably already knew: exercise helps dissipate anger. However, it’s important to clarify the difference between anger as a mood and anger as an emotion: mood lasts longer and is less associated with an immediate trigger, while the emotion is shorter and usually a reaction to an event. Exercise was found to have no effect on the emotion, but not only did it reduce participants’ angry mood, it also made them less likely to be in that mood after the exercise. So if you can’t shake that cranky feeling, leave the rage on the road. WORDS: STEPHEN GLENNON. ILLUSTRATION: IKER AYESTARAN 1. MEDICINE & SCIENCE IN SPORTS & EXERCISE…

spring theory

IF YOU THINK ELITE RUNNERS always look like they have more of a spring in their step than the rest of us, new research has just proven you right. The study compared recreational and elite runners running at the same speeds, and found elites have a more ‘bouncy’ running style. They spend 11 per cent more time with neither foot touching the ground, which was in contrast to the flatter running style – meaning more ground contact time – of the recreational runners. ‘The elite are in the air more, and as soon as you’re in the air, it’s a free ride,’ says senior research fellow Dr Steve Preece. However, he also warned that runners who attempt to go faster by increasing stride length may risk reducing the bounce factor and…
