Ready to the take the leap from being a walker to a runner? Even the least experienced person can find their stride.

1. Start Small

Starting out, runners have a tendency to go too hard. Building your love for running isn’t a race. Begin by setting yourself the target of running for 5 minutes. The next time increase to 10 minutes. Working up to achievable goals will reduce your risk of injury and fatigue.

2. Get the Right Gear

Sport brands relentlessly innovate to release new designs that support you in achieving your best, so make sure you choose the kit and footwear that’s tailored to the job. Nike chemists spent three years testing new materials and design methods to create the newly launched Epic React running shoe. Designed for both long and short-distance running, it promises to be 13% bouncier than its rivals.

3. Take on Challenges

Varying distances and difficulty levels make THE ICONIC SPORT Challenge an ideal way to work running into your routine and boost your fitness. The challenge set by Nike–running 5kms–is ideal.

4. Use an App

Speaking of the Nike challenge, the sport giant’s Run Club app is next level. Motivation from millions of other runners, progress tracking and guided audio while you run that spurs you on and talks you through technique.
