In an effort to “bring the world of running together”, the International Association of Athletics Federation has launched WorldRunning.com , a new global website aimed at non-elite runners.
The new website has quite a range of content including training programmes for different distances and different levels of athlete together with guides on various aspects of training, nutrition, injury etc. Perhaps most intriguing is the international ranking system whereby points values as associated with a runner’s race performances and the best 5 contribute to a ranking.
Come and run a mile and raise money for a great cause at Footes Lane this Saturday. Open to all ages, refreshments will be available from the GIAAC club room.
More information on GIAAC website here.
