What is Running?

Running is a form of exercise that can be done at anytime and anywhere.

Running is a form of exercise that can be done at anytime and anywhere. For the majority of people, running is a way to keep fit as it can be done at any pace, over any distance. But at a competitive level there are many different distances for events, from the 100m to ultra-marathons, all of which require different training and techniques.

Benefits

Regular running can reduce your risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control. Running also helps to get rid of excessive adrenalin and other stress hormones, boosts your mood and keeps you fit.

Costs

Running is free, you can do it anywhere.

Involvement

If you are new to running, or you've not been active for a while, you may want to build your fitness levels gently by walking before you move on to running. Couch to 5K is a free nine-week running plan from NHS Change 4 Life especially designed for people who want to work on their fitness levels. Or if you prefer to run with friends Run England can help you find a beginners running group in your local area.

Equipment

Running requires very little equipment, but a good pair of running shoes that suit your foot type will reduce the risk of injury.
