I always think one of the most wonderful things about running is how inclusive it is. It’s not often you might see athletic teenagers happily sharing the same fitness goals as 70-something grans, but on Saturday mornings at parkrun (oh parkrun, I miss you!) you would. Every single week. But while the numbers of older runners are growing, there are still some common misconceptions about age and running. There’s that old chestnut about running ruining your knees, for instance. If we could banish just this one untruth about running, I would be one happy editor.

VIRTUAL LONDON MARATHON A SUCCESS The wind blew and the rain came down but that was not what united the UK on 4th October 2020. Thousands of runners took part virtually and the elites had the track to themselves. What a day! After a quiet summer, with endless cancelled events and deferred places, the nation pondered how significant a virtual 40th London Marathon could really be. Not able to travel to the iconic course that weaves its way from Greenwich to The Mall, over 40,000 runners chose to pin on their London Marathon numbers and take to the streets – their streets – and still run, many to ensure the charities they were supporting received vital funds in such a challenging year.
