What is Running?

Running is a form of exercise that can be done at anytime and anywhere.

For the majority of people, running is a way to keep fit as it can be done at any pace, over any distance. But at a competitive level there are many different distances for events, from the 100m to ultra-marathons, all of which require different training and techniques.
