Hi there

Last Ever Southern Running Guide eNews!

RunABC logo

Yes, you read correctly, this is the last ever eNews as Southern Running Guide! Don’t worry though, we’re not going anywhere. Instead we’ll be returning as RunABC South eNews to coincide with the launch of our new-look magazine.
The new magazine will still include all the things you love about Southern Running Guide, just with more content and a bigger, brighter look! We think you’ll like the changes we’ve made to the magazine - the new contributors like Shona Thomson and Veggie Runners, the ‘deluxe’ training log and an experimental ‘Running And Life’ section. And much more.
