THE HIGH-ENERGY MAGAZINE FOR EVERYONE WHO RUNS, FREE FROM YOUR FAVOURITE RUNNING SHOP


In this, my last issue editing Running Free, we celebrate the Running Family. My own family can’t help but be fit and we were delighted to be guests at Chilly Powder in Morzine for an action-packed running holiday; turn to page 18 to hear how we got on and to follow our training tips and schedule. Last September Running Free campaigned to Get The Family Fit, and Chilly Powder gets a gold star on that front. We were delighted to hear that many of you


train and keep active together. Running instills a sense of purpose in the individual and brings together a community of like-minded people. Grass-roots running clubs are at the heart of this, as we discovered talking to six readers on page 22 about why they love their running club. I had the privilege this month to meet and interview our greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, a man for whom life is one big adventure… As it has been for me over the last 18 fantastic months. Now I’m handing over to Natalie Lucas, your new editor, who I’m certain will continue to bring you great stories, reviews and features!
