Issue #2 has arrived!

 

We are delighted to announce that the second edition of Like the Wind is now available.

 

Bigger and (we think) better than the first issue, Like the Wind #2 has more stories with the same focus on what moves, amuses and motivates us as runners. With contributions from all sorts of runners including well known names like Charlie Spedding, Dean Karnazes and Ian Corless as well as from runners of every type, there is something (we hope everything) for everyone.

 

You can order a copy of the magazine now from the shop or buy a subscription for the next four issues. We also have a competition: anyone who buys a copy of issue #2 or a subscription before lunchtime on Monday (midday GMT on Monday 26 May) will be entered into a draw to win either a limited edition Prefontaine print or a four-edition subscription – winner’s choice!

 

We hope you enjoy the next edition of the magazine and as always, we would love to read your stories, hear about your ideas for pieces in the magazine and your feedback on the two editions so far. Drop us a line: run@likethewindmagazine.com

About the magazine

Like the Wind magazine is a collection of stories about running, from the track, trail and road. There are personal anecdotes, inspirational tales and wonderful pictures, all designed to inspire and delight

 

Launched in February 2014, Like the Wind magazine is printed on responsibly sourced paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, so that it is as sustainable as it is beautiful. With a wonderful weight, this magazine looks and feels fantastic and is a real treat to read and collect.

 

Who we are

Like the Wind is a personal project brought to you by freestak, a social media and marketing agency for running and endurance sports brands. The freestak team are all passionate about running, endurance sports and the great outdoors. The idea for Like the Wind came from a desire to be motivated by other runners’ stories. The founders of freestak were particularly inspired by magazines from other sports, especially cycling and mountaineering, where the emphasis was on the spirit of the sport rather than the technical elements. We take our hats off to The Ride Journal, Rouleur, Single Track and Alpinist magazines amongst others.

 

Like the Wind magazine is a not-for-profit enterprise. Any money that is left after we have paid for the production and distribution of the magazine will be given to charities nominated by the contributors. Many thanks to all of our contributors who have offered their creativity and time for free.

 

We would like to welcome all runners to your magazine. Please support us so that we can inspire as many people as possible. Be a reader. Buy a copy as a present. And be a contributor. Happy running, everyone.
