A picture of lots of runners from the knees downRunning is a great way to get fit that need not break the bank. All that is required is a good pair of shoes, some appropriate clothes and the perseverance to keep going.

The benefits of running are immense, and include making you happier, fitter, sharper and can even help strengthen your joints.

You don’t have to go from zero to hero either – we have loads of 5K events going on throughout the year to help you get started. When you are ready you can move onto longer distances if you like, and if you catch the running bug, maybe you can even brave an ultra ambitious ultra marathon!
