the best new year’s resolution!

TRAIL RUNNING never ceases to amaze me. Deep down, anyone who ever runs off-road knows that something special is happening whether that’s naturally strengthening your knees and ankles, boosting your endurance or experiencing the natural high that exploring our countryside enevitably produces. But it’s always nice to read that science is fully on board with that too – as professsor John Brewer confirms in his article on page 30. Trail running ticks all the right boxes when it comes to creating a fitter, faster you. Another recent afternoon spent chatting with two incredible yet ‘normal’ runners certainly confirmed that and more. You can read their life-changing stories on page 38, but be warned – you’ll never have a valid reason to miss a run again! Smoking, drinking, hip surgery, international superstardom;…

A VERY ‘COOL’ PIC Scotland in winter is no picnic, but there are some truly magnificent trails to run – even when the snow and ice has taken its frosty grip on the mountains and glens of the Highlands. This photo was taken just above the eastern entrance to the deep trench of Glen Coe, home to some of Britain’s finest mountain scenery including Bidean nam Bian and the Aonach Eagach ridge. Go well prepared, with the right gear in the right conditions, and you’ll never want to leave. TRULY ORIGINAL For more than half a century now, the first part of the winter has been all about one race: the Original Mountain Marathon. More commonly known as ‘The OMM’, the 51st edition of this two-day epic took place in the Black Mountains…

how to stay in one piece

Softly does it Land lightly on your feet to avoid injury, say scientists. Changing your gait is very difficult, but researchers at Harvard Medical School found some interesting results when analysing 249 heel-striking female runners over two years. They discovered that the 21 runners who didn’t suffer injuries all landed softly on their heels. Dodge downhills Running downhill is worse for your knees than other types of gradient, is the unsurprising news from scientists at the University of Nevada. Apparently the first study of its kind found patellofemoral joint stress to be significantly higher on descents than when running on the flat or uphill, as reported by Physical Therapy in Sport. Beware weight loss Female runners with a BMI (body mass index) of less than 19 are at greater risk of stress fractures. Dr Tim…
