what is your favourite running movie?

‘I love The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner: a raw kitchen sink drama full of angst and excitement, starring a young Tom Courtenay. A truly great British film.’ – Jack Tennant ‘A perverse choice – the little-known (rightly so) 1979 film Running, starring Michael Douglas as a marathon runner aiming for a place on the US Olympic team. Endless running scenes, all of them dull, and Douglas’ shorts are alarming. It’s a guilty pleasure, though the guilt, like the film, is nigh-on unbearable.’ – John Carroll ‘Obvious, I know, but it has to be Chariots of Fire. Grand themes, richly drawn characters, beautiful film-making and compelling storytelling. Try watching the titles scene, as they splash barefoot across the beach, without wanting to head out for a run.’ – Joe Mackie ‘Prefontaine. I think Jared Leto…

YOU DON’T NEED magic pills, diet hacks or hours and hours of sudoku to delay or ease the effects of ageing. Just lace up your shoes and go out to do the thing you love. Running is, and always has been, one of the best ways of slowing the ageing process. It helps control weight, strengthens our heart and lungs, and gives us the best kind of feel-good high.

If you run, your health, energy and quality of life are much better as you get older. Ample evidence of that can be…

A NEW STUDY HAS FOUND that eating mushrooms promotes the absorption of micronutrients, including B vitamins. Sports dietitian Renee McGregor says this is important because running causes ‘an increase in oxidative stress’ – which B vitamins can help to mitigate. Mushrooms are also a good source of vitamin D but McGregor says that most UK-based runners would still benefit from taking a vitamin D supplement. ‘Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin,’ she says, ‘so cook your mushrooms in olive oil or rapeseed oil to get the most from them.’ WORDS: JESSICA DOWNEY.
