Running in the Mid-Pack: A Reasonable Runner's Guide to Going Faster, Further and having Fun (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


An expert running guide designed to engage with the substantial, and growing, yet often overlooked, middle-of-the-pack runner. The book is co-written by Martin Yelling, London Marathon's official coach and star of Marathon Talk, the UK's number 1 running podcast.

Mid-pack runners are the unsung heroes of the running world and often don't get the credit they deserve. 'Mid-packers' run week-in, week-out, year-in, year-out but are ignored in book terms in favour of beginners and elite runners. And being in the mid-pack can be far from fun, often their performances plateau and this lack of achievement can lead to a loss of enthusiasm.

This groundbreaking book is specially devised with mid-packers in mind and will provide this important group with all the expert knowledge they need to go faster and go further.

Running in the Mid-Pack will offer advice on how to reduce the risk of injuries and how to bring more enjoyment to the training process through a fascinating mix of expert knowledge, runners' stories and sample workouts.

Martin Yelling is a regular writer and coach for health, fitness and running media. He is the current coaching advisor to Men's Running magazine and has written for many different titles including The Guardian, Evening Standard, Metro, Running Fitness, Triathlon Plus, Outdoor Fitness, Trail Magazine and London Marathon News. He can regularly be seen presenting and speaking at running and endurance events including on the main stage at the Virgin Money London Marathon Expo. Martin is the founder and a main presenter of the UK's number 1 running podcast Marathon Talk, as well as co-founder of the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. Anji Andrews is a professional running coach as well as a journalist and social media content writer for Events of the North, Marathon Talk, and SightCare Group.
