Longer days = more hours for running!

Having just had the longest day, we couldn’t help but notice how many people are out running early in the morning as well as late in the evening! It’s fantastic to be able to make the most of the long daylight hours by running at a time that would be most antisocial in winter (but we still do it, right?). For those of us with work, kids, or simply not enough hours in the day, summertime gives us a few more hours to get everything done – and if that means more running as a result, we’re happy!


Of course, your 9am slot on a Saturday is perfect for parkrun in the summer – it’s far easier to get out of bed, the day hasn’t got too hot and our local parks and trails are looking beautiful at this time of year. So, if you have a friend or loved one who you think might #loveparkrun, now’s the time to bring them along!


Wherever you are with you running, we’re always on hand at Intersport with plenty of friendly advice, from tips about running through to gait analysis and finding your perfect shoe. Find your nearest store here

You will never look back once you start

Regular parkrunner Ann Lynch can usually be found enjoying a 5k walk at Tralee parkrun on a Saturday morning. However this wasn’t always the case, 18 months ago Ann didn’t think parkrun was a place for her, until one morning she plucked up the courage to join the Tail Walker and tackle her first ever 5k.  …
