To run a race at your best, it is necessary to train for running races. That can be quite different from the day-to-day running and training which is usually how most of us run. Although there are some obvious differences between marathon training, 5k run training, and training for all of the distances in between, there are also some great similarities between how a runner should prepare for those events. Specifically, it is necessary to sometimes run and train at race-pace or faster, rather than simply go out for slow, long distance runs. Naturally, the same principle applies for triathlon training as well, both for the running portion of the race and the swimming and biking stages.
Our collection of great training tips covers these and many other vital areas of training to run races, including nutrition for runners, injury prevention, running safety, and stretching. Of course, you don't just need to be a race runner to appreciate the advice here; there are plenty of training tips for every day runners, even those who plan to never enter a race. And even athletes following a cross training running regimen will find good advice here to help their general fitness levels.
