Are you a keen runner? Or are you just embarking on your running journey? Whatever level you’re at, our running hub is full of expert advice and tips to help you master the art of running and achieve your goals.

As well as the wealth of information found below, be sure to also try out our Running Club sessions at selected BMF parks across the country. Like the traditional BMF sessions, these are an hour long and cater for all abilities. You will learn about running technique, stamina and how to avoid injury, as well as enjoying the company and motivation of others around you. It's a seriously fun and effective way to improve your running skills.
We hold running clubs at the following BMF parks:
Use body weight dynamic movements to warm up as they closely mimic movements made during exercise. Squats and lunges are great for this.
Getting your eating habits right will help massively. Balance your diet to include good quality protein, seasonal fruits and vegetables and good fats.
You’ll lose a lot of water when you run and your water intake has to increase in line with this. Whatever your current intake, drink at least half a litre more.
Having a goal when it comes to running can really spur you on. Why not sign up for a 5km or 10km race in the spring/summer, such as The BMF Major Series?
Rest and recovery are a vital part of training. Stay active, keep moving but lower the intensity. Maybe walk or ride….
