How many runners?! Hasn’t it been amazing to see so many new runners since the lockdown? Thousands more would-be warriors have been pounding the streets. Some running around the block, others taking on full C25k programmes. With your help, we want to harness the potential of these runners for the future and inspire them to keep on running.
We are putting together a free digital book for runners about the true impact of the first 5k. We all know the physical benefits of running and exercise, but we want to uncover the real stories behind the blood, sweat and tears that took you to the big 5k. What was the impact on you? How did it feel? What happened next? Where did it lead you? What funny stories happened? What horrors should they know? What tips do you have? What have you learnt since?
We’d love to hear from you – it doesn’t have to be in-depth, it can be a quote, a quick story or a one line quip, anything that you don’t mind us using to build a book of impact. Because nothing inspires runners more than other runners.
You can add your anecdotes or stories below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll contact you to make sure you’re happy for us to use it and we’ll make sure you get a copy when it’s released.
Thanks for your help
