When we launched our running blog, we asked you to tell us about your favourite sites. If this had been an Olympic event, then Fetcheveryone would have sprinted away with the gold medal – a huge number of you emailed, tweeted or commented about your love for the site. We asked the founder to tell us the story of the site and its devoted following – you can read that here.

Meanwhile, we’ve started to compile a list from your suggestions. We’ve organised them into various categories, but we still want more. Are there other sites with helpful injury prevention or recovery advice? What about specific organised events, such as the popular Park Run? And how about getting those trainers mucky? We have a couple of off-road sites on our list already but there must be many more.

A final note: many of you suggested individual blogs (sometimes even your own). There were so many of these that we are still going through them. We’ll add a list of them later.
