Summertime and the running is easy. Recent good weather has meant a real boost for runners across the UK. A few precautions - sun screen, proper hydration and a cap - and you're set for a running bonanza. Don't overdo it, but don't miss out on the opportunity to log some extra miles and build a real platform for a big autumn target. And when you mention autumn targets, there are three giants that really make you sit-up and think: "Yeah, I fancy that." We're talking about the World Marathon Majors - Berlin (28 September), Chicago (12 October) and New York (2 November). Your chance to add one of the majors to your list of accomplishments and the extra incentive of a £50 money-off offer.
These events are stand-outs. Europe's top continental marathon staged on a flat, super-fast course in the iconic German capital in September. International excitement combines with German precision to create a very special race plus Berlin is the world record course, so a must do for runners.
October is Chicago and the mid-west metropolis isn't just 'my kinda town', it's your 'kinda town' too. A unique course that showcases the city's dramatic lakeside setting and provides a superb tour of Chicago's many districts across 26 memorable miles.
And then there's the Daddy - New York City Marathon and the world's biggest marathon field. It's the world's most colourful race in the world's most colourful city. No one cheers marathon runners better than a New Yorker - it's in their DNA. Expect non-stop high-volume support as you run through the five boroughs before an unforgettable Manhattan finish. Then you get to party!
