Some of you reading this already run regularly. You may be exploring ways in which running benefits you. These people will know the ultimate feeling of accomplishment that takes its rightful place in your mind after a gruelling run.

Though a number of you will be reading and wondering what the fuss is about. How could a simple activity like going for a run help you find ‘solace’?

Regular aerobic exercise (in this case running) can help you cope with issues, fears and stresses that plague the minds of us all.

Why should you run?

Running can benefit the mind as well as the body and help you cope with the very real stresses of daily life or the symptoms of an illness.

Where do I start running?

If you’re new to running you may not know where to begin running regularly.

My first advice would be to keep it simple and start around your neighbourhood.

However, if you want to find a more suitable running route that’s near you click here. Runtogether is a running app designed for beginners.

Being an offshoot of Cornish based magazine Dure, we have created a guide to 5 coastal running routes for you to explore in Cornwall.

Running for Solace was founded by photographer & journalist Conan Marshall.
