Win £1000 For Your Story!

Share some inspirational writing about your running, and you could win £1000. RW, along with Reebok, and two of its sister magazines, is running a project to inspire readers to run – based on real-life stories just like yours.

It might be about starting to run, or overcoming obstacles. It might be about your marathon build-up, or race-day. It might just be an account of a run on a clear, fresh day. The possibilities are endless.

Each month's best stories will appear in the three magazines and win a prize, and in October, the best of the best wins £1000, a training session with Darren Campbell, and more.

Here are extracts from three so far:

  • "The first time I attempted to run, I went 100 metres before I had to stop. It was horrible feeling that I was that unfit. I kept at it though, and soon I could run for 10 minutes with only a couple of stops, then 15..." more
  • "Mark had trained so hard for this sub-4-hour goal but he looked ill. Skinny and washed out... we just put it down to all the training. But we were wrong: we found out two weeks later that he had testicular cancer...." more
  • "The best of it all is, I feel 100% better, I look 100% better and I can now say, 'I've run a marathon'" more
