Here at Front Runner Events, we bring you running events for you to take part in, but without YOU, the running events can’t go ahead. Our fun-loving runners are what make our events what they are.
Whether you’re out for the occasional run, training for an event or it’s race day, it’s important that you’re looking after yourself when running in the heat. Summer running can be a pleasant experience however, it is important to carry out appropriate safety measures as it can also be a dangerous experience if not prepared for correctly.
Good health and well-being are critical for us all, but sometimes we don’t make it a priority when we have busy schedules, but we should! Workplace fitness is important for individuals, a team, and the business, as people are the vital assets of every company! We often find ourselves feeling run down, or exhausted and don’t associate exercise with work. However, it doesn’t have to be that way with many organisations taking the lead to develop a culture of workplace fitness.
We all know running is good for our general fitness, but it also helps improve our mental health and it’s all in the science! Running releases chemical endorphins and serotonin in your body that lifts your mood and can help relieve anxiety and depression. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme this year is loneliness so we wanted to share how running can reduce the feeling of loneliness and help bring you together with others who share the same passion for running.

Volunteers play a vital role of our crew and we simply couldn’t deliver our events without them! So today we wanted to shine a spotlight on one of our volunteers who has been with us from the very beginning!
