Running in the Midpack: How to be a Strong, Successful and Happy Runner (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.

Midpack runners are the unsung heroes of the running world and often don't get the credit they deserve. 'Midpackers' 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 midpackers in mind and will provide this important group with all the expert knowledge they need to go faster and go further.

Running in the Midpack 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.
