The running community is a truly supportive place to be a part of and we encourage runners to share their running stories, both the highs and lows, as others will learn and offer support and encouragement at the same time.
But why should you get involved? Have a read of some of the benefits of joining such an inspiring community:
Motivation and Accountability
Interacting with fellow runners can provide a really strong support system. Seeing others' progress, sharing achievements, successes and failures, and receiving encouragement can boost your motivation to stick with your running routine.
Share Your Knowledge
The running community often share a wealth of information, whether it's training tips, nutrition advice, injury prevention strategies, and race recommendations. Being part of such a community allows you to tap into the collective wisdom and experiences of other runners, enabling you to learn and improve.
Inspiration and Encouragement
Engaging with fellow runners allows you to be inspired by their achievements and success stories, as well as learning from the failures many of us have encountered! Whether it's hearing about someone completing a marathon or witnessing their journey from a couch to 5k to an experienced runner, these stories can fuel your own determination and drive.
Virtual Training Partners
Even if you typically run alone, the online running community can provide you with virtual training partners. You can find individuals with similar running goals or pace and connect with them to plan virtual runs together. Running alongside someone, even virtually, can make your training sessions more enjoyable and provide a sense of camaraderie.
Every month, we offer a free monthly mileage tracker which many runners use. Simply download it, print it off and stick it on your wall or fridge. Then set yourself a target and track your progress over the course of the month.
Asking Questions And Looking For Advice
If you have questions related to running, the running community is an amazing place to seek advice. Whether you need recommendations for dealing with an injury, suggestions for improving your pace, or insights into proper running gear, fellow runners can offer guidance based on their experiences.
We personally love being connected with the running community and we believe it by connecting with other runners, it can enhance your running experience by providing motivation, knowledge sharing, support, and connections with like-minded individuals.
