    • It burns more calories than many mainstream exercise activities. You can do it as little or as often as you like and fit it around your busy schedule.
    • If you want to start running but feel nervous about doing it on your own, RunTogether could be the answer.
    • Or check out parkrun UK, who organise free weekly runs in open spaces including parks, woodlands and beaches.
    • You can find more about how to get into running here with Get Inspired's handy guide.
