CoolRunning Articles

Articles Gathered here is an ad-hoc collection of articles on running, although not purely Australian-based, you'll find that they are of general interest. It makes a change to read a nice little article or story of interest, rather than the usual diet of facts and figures and race results ... Enjoy !

You can submit your articles by sending an email here, although we reserve the right to not publish all those sent.
