A Runaway Success - Update on the Running Dialgues

Tuesday 26 May 2015

Running Dialogues is a new free seminar series starting in 2015 that seeks to celebrate and investigate running by bringing together for discussion all of those interested in ideas about running. The series will use academic research into running as a starting point for conversations between academics, those in the running sector, and runners themselves. The seminars are open to anyone with an interest in running, and will be lively and accessible, with lots of time for audience discussion and participation.

Are you inspired?  It is not too late to attend the last two seminars in this exciting seminar series:

8 June:  Experiences of Running:  12:30 pm- 3:30 pm

This event is focussed on what it is like to run and how running is experienced by bodies and minds. Themes discussed will include the emotions of running, the experience of endurance, the impact of running on the body, and the categorisation of running bodies.

29 June:  Running, Space and Place:  5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This event will explore the spaces and places of running and the unique ways in which runners inhabit the world. Speakers will discuss runners’ routes, their choice of location, how they interact with the world and engage with places, and why these are important to understand.
