From the publisher:

Around the world, a shared passion for running

Running… the deceptively simple act of moving forward, which in reality means something different to every runner – and reader.

Once again we’re thrilled to share running stories from around the world in the latest edition of Like the Wind. Our printed pages play host to a huge spectrum of experiences and geographies, ranging from the stunning lakes and mountains of the Epirus region of Greece to the pinewoods of north-western Scotland’s Atlantic coast to the dry desert highways connecting Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The Prolyfyck Run Creww, in Charlottesville, Virginia - an inspirational group that has created a truly diverse, inclusive space where runners are seen and supported, and social injustices are recognised and addressed.

...Author Gavin Boyter follows a childhood hero to a Scottish beach; in Portugal, Gonçalo Santos explains why he’s actually grateful to Covid-19; and in those Greek mountains we mentioned above, Nick Herbert writes passionately about the European refugee crisis.

...Writer Sheridan Wilbur and photographer Joe Hale are trackside in New York with the [Ivy League] students who are expected to be the best both academically and in the athletic arena.

A little further west, Like the Wind editor Simon Freeman catches up with the determined, and possibly foolish, racers taking on The Speed Project Solo, covering the 340 miles between Venice Beach and Vegas.
