The November issue of AW sees the launch of our annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Which athletes have shone brightest and which performances have stood out furthest for you in 2022? Have a look at our nominees and casts your votes.
One of those nominees is this month’s cover star, women’s Olympic and world 1500m champion Faith Kipyegon. Among other things, the Kenyan superstar opens up about leaving a legacy in the event, tackling the issue of doping in her home country and also setting her sights on tackling the marathon.
We take a deep dive, too, into the state of play when it comes to officials. What does the future hold for those who make athletics tick? Paul Halford finds out, plus we feature a brilliant extract from new book Unsung, in which Alan Bell takes us into the world of the starter.
As we come to the end of the major road racing events season for the autumn, a trend of lower event entry levels is becoming all too evident. Tim Adams asks where all the runners who were expected to provide a boom for mass participation races post Covid have gone, while author Damian Hall examines the environmental impact of events and outlines what runners can do to make a difference in the climate crisis.
Elsewhere in the issue, there is also an exclusive interview with international marathon runner Callum Hawkins, who continues his recovery from injury, while our packed performance section features plyometric tips from coach John Shepherd, training insight from Amelia Quirk and Paul Freary tests out the best gear for off-road adventure this winter.
With coach and commentator Geoff Wightman the focus of this month’s Ask The Athlete,
Richard Whitehead recalling his greatest race and columnist Katharine Merry looking at the huge impact felt when the rules are broken, there are plenty of reasons to pick up your copy.
