11 types of runner you encounter in the UK

The Running Bug has posted a humourous article about the 11 different types of runner you’re likely to encounter pounding the streets in the UK.

On closer inspection, I’m a little bit of 1, 5, 8 and 10.

What makes me “The Poser”? Well, I do like to colour co-ordinate my running gear…

What makes me  “All The Gear, No Idea”? I actually do have a very good idea about running but I do like to have accessories etc.

What makes me “Mr Competitive”. Anybody that knows me will understand I hate to lose, but I don’t purposely lurk in parks. If I’m running behind somebody and I think I can over take them, I’ll give it a shot.

What makes me “Forrest Gump”? If I’m in the middle of a run, I won’t stop for anybody. I also like to train on my typical routes so people will normally see me in the same places, week-in and week-out.

What type of runner are you?

  1. I’ve found that on my training runs and on the actual half marathon I turn in to the singer at mile eleven. Not a full blown singer mind you. I do mime though.
