Age and experience are the key factors in predicting running success, new research at the University of St Andrews has found.

Membership of a running club, as well as having run the same race several times, were also strong indicators of whether someone would be able to accurately predict their finishing time - giving older runners the advantage over their youthful counterparts.

By Tracy Green

img_5355-x3.jpg I used to be scared of the half marathon. Too far to fake it, not far enough to be comfortable. I worried if I ran a half marathon before a marathon, I’d use up all my fitness. That doesn’t even make sense.

This year, I’ve run three half marathons in the first half of the year. One was two weeks before my marathon; the other two after.

So what’s changed? Mileage. Overall fitness. Confidence.
