What It Takes | Make Your Running Journey Great

With all the uncertainty over matches being cancelled, new rules and restrictions on what training is or isn’t allowed, the one certainty is, you’re sure to see someone out running.

Running is one of Ireland’s most popular activities with 7% of the population putting their best foot forward. More so in the last 6 months, many people have taken up running for the first time and are just getting to grips with the sport.

At Intersport Elverys, we understand what is happening in the world of sport and running as one of them continue to grow in numbers – as more people are running, run more frequently and run for longer.

Through Intersport Elverys running ambassadors Andrew Coscoran and Sarah Quinn, we aim to bring to life the journey of the runner, to inspire and provide you with insights into the minds of local athletes on what motivates them to do what it takes to stay at the top of their game throughout winter.

ANDREW COSCORAN | IRISH TRACK ATHLETE 

A 4 Minute Miler, Andrew is certainly a spirited runner who has a National title for the Irish Indoor over 1500M Championship and will be looking to do it on the World stage at the Olympics. He chatted with us on his history with running, on how beneficial running can be for your sport and how to keep the work rate up over Winter.
