7th May 2022

Ahead of this weekend’s Doncaster Half Marathan we wanted to share with you a blog from our friends at Curly’s Athletics about how amazing running can be.

With the event due to take place on Sunday, June 12, there is still time for some last minute training!

Many people will already know how running can benefit you physically; from strengthening muscles to increasing bone density and helping to regulate weight.

It’s also great for:

1) Helping you to sleep better (just make sure you don’t exercise too late at night, as this will raise your body temperature!)

2) Helps to keep your joints mobile

3) Supports heart health

4) Improves mental health by releasing endorphins

5) Reduces anxiety symptoms

With so many benefits, it’s not hard to see why running has become more popular in recent years and all you need is a pair of trainers to start!

So, if you’re looking to take up running, or if you’re coming back to it, have a look at our Curly’s Athletes Chat Facebook page for ideas and your questions. Over the coming weeks, we will have some great features from some of our coaches to help you on your journey.

We know it can be a little daunting (and we’ve all had to start at the beginning) but you’ll find that once you start, that it’s hard to stop!
