The Sunday Independent's Running Guide

This week’s Sunday Independent will publish a free 24-page running guide.

The magazine is aimed at enthusiasts who have already been bitten by the running bug, and beginners, those who are ready to take their first steps into a brave new world. There are motivational tips to guide you along the way.

RUNNATION, offers readers a simple couch to 5k training plan, and invaluable tips on how to get started by Catherina McKiernan. There are also simple easy to follow 10k and marathon plans.

“Running can transform your life and improve the way you feel in body, mind and spirit,” says Catherina. “In the hectic bustle of everyday life, many people have trouble finding time for themselves, time to think and find peace.”

Derval O’Rourke has some pointers on nutrition, while RUNNATION also looks at how running benefits mental wellbeing.

The special magazine also looks at the park run phenomenon, and also features an events calendar for the remainder of the year.

Well-known figures give their favourite running routes, while Killian Byrne from Operation Transformation shares his remarkable experience in discovering the joy of running.

“My specific ‘why’ can change from day to day - but as a motivating factor it remains the strongest reason to put on the runners. It might be to balance a diet, to lose weight, to clear the mind or just to escape into your own thoughts.”

The Running Guide, in association with Sport Ireland, is published with this week’s Sunday Independent.
