I was wondering if anyone has any (fairly) recent statistics about how many runners there are in the uk? (inc. recreational, competititive and professional?)
Intuitively, it feels like a growing number, but maybe that's because I've started doing a couple of more public races (as opposed to my normal fell races starting from a pub car park) that makes it feel like there are thousands?!
Could do with figures on recreational walkers too if anyone has any at hand...??
