Welcome to Running at 40 Plus

Welcome to R40.  A website with YOU in mind. Specifically for runners over 40.  Helpful hints, tips, advice, events and challenges.  Whatever your experience from newbie C25K to seasoned marathoners we have an amazing community to encourage and support you on your individual journeys.


Our Ambassador Jo Pavey

Jo became the oldest female European champion in history at the age of 40 years and 325 days.

As a long-distance runner and a World, European and Commonwealth medallist, she won the 10,000m gold medal at the 2014 European Championships in Zürich, ten months after giving birth to her second child.  We love working with Jo (and her husband/trainer Gav) and are very grateful for her/their continual support.
