Celebrate Why You Run

#whywerunRun England has started an online campaign in which they are inviting people to share their running experiences during the summer. The #whywerun hashtag has been assigned for runners to tweet their running pictures on Twitter as well as Instagram.

Run England, the official England Athletics recreational running project, is looking for participants to celebrate the benefits of running, whether it’s burning calories, saving money on the commute or relaxing and making new friends.

The best images will be featured on the website daily and one person will win a year’s subscription to Running Fitness magazine for the overall #whywerun picture of the summer. Newcomers to the sport are particularly encouraged to submit an image.              

England Athletics’ Head of Participation Andy Anstey said: “Running is one of the best ways to improve your health and fitness and with the longer days and warmer weather, summer is the perfect time to start. Run England beginners’ groups – with qualified Group Leaders on hand to help you every step of the way – provide a friendly, sociable platform for anyone to turn up and find out why we run.”
