The Covid diaries: running in the time of coronavirus

A new weekly blog series from Run Deep (, each week we’ll be sharing stories of how runners are getting on during the coronavirus crisis.

From epic treadmill ultramarathons, to garden relays, inventing new parkruns to finding new hidden footpaths, runners all over the country are finding innovative ways to keep their spirits high in unusual times. Or maybe you’re struggling in light of the guidelines and lockdown measures, juggling other commitments like working from home and managing home-schooling. With no races or parkruns, no group runs or club nights, it can be hard to stay motivated. However, you’re feeling about your running right now, just know you’re not alone.

These blogs will give insight into the lives of other runners right now, which will hopefully inspire, motivate, support or comfort you over the coming months.

If you’d like to contribute to this new blog series, we need the following:

Your name and any website/social details you want us to publish
200-250 words about your running/not running in a given week – how you’re feeling and what you’ve been up to
1-2 pictures from your week to illustrate your submission
Send it to

[email protected]

The blog will be published on each Sunday evening, so we need each week’s submission by the Friday morning before to be considered for publication.

We hope you enjoy reading this new blog series in the coming weeks.
