In our last instalment of recommended reads for the month of November, we have a video of Kilian Jornet acclimatising in the Himalayas and also a great post by Elisabet Barnes about the 2017 Everest Trail Race with fantastic images from Ian Corless.

On the more practical side, we have a new tool to ease cramping, five suggestions to snack on healthier sugar, and how to improve your form. Our little curiosity piece for the month reflects on local laws you might be breaking when you’re out running.

Finally, as RunUltra’s latest nutrition pièce de résistance we had our expert, Renee McGregor, put together some dietary suggestions to complement your weight-loss training.
