This coming Sunday it's the London Marathon, definitely one of the world's biggest running events since the first runners crossed the finishing line 38 years ago now.
Of course you don't have to run 26 miles through the capital to feel and see the many benefits of running. You can do this even if you're just starting and half a mile is a great start – whether in the city, in a park, across the countryside or on a treadmill at our gyms (certainly the best option if it's cold, wet and/or dark!).
If you'd like any running tips, please ask our friendly fitness experts at the gym.
