I got very excited previously on Jographies about the launch of Running Mayors in the UK.
Well, now they are here!
“The Running Mayors Network is an initiative to champion the role of running in our cities & places.
Running Mayors inspire more people to run local, everyday journeys. This is running as a form of active travel, as an alternative to jumping in the car, as well as for leisure and sport.”
The first 70 (!!!) have just been announced and you can find out where they are, who they are, and what their priorities are as Running Mayor here:
This is a hugely exciting initiative and I can’t wait to see all the wonderful things they get up to.
