Over the coming weeks our expert athletes and a team of product designers at PUMA will be on hand to give their words of wisdom on making the most of your running.
- Ever wanted to know the science behind running shoes? In August, we talked about shoe technology, design and performance in a special webchat with PUMA's product team, including Bob Michalski from development and Steve Keating from design. Check out the highlights of the Q&A here.

"City running is a good way of getting from A to B. Sometimes I run home straight from work. It's a great time saver and that's a big thing for lots of people," says James Wilkinson, British cross country champ and steeplechase runner. "Reflective gear is also important. No matter where you go in a city you're going to be crossing roads, so reflective gear is key."
"In cities, you're passing cars and people and you can imagine they are your crowd. You can pace yourself like you're in a race," says Susan Partridge, Scottish and GB distance runner. "There's a route that I like to do in Leeds, which is a loop from my house. Some people might think it’s boring but it's ever so slightly uphill on the way out and slightly downhill on the way back so it's good training."
"I went to university in Swansea and spent three years running around the city. Running in Swansea was great, with the bay as the backdrop," says Welsh half marathon champion and cross-country athlete Dewi. "I've never been a morning person and have always run at night. Running under the city street lights is a great feeling, it's just you and the road. That's why I like to run really."
