Hi all.

I’ve had back and joint pain for many years and today have finally been diagnosed with arthritic changes in my facet joints in my spine and other joints in my hips.

I am a runner and am currently training for the London Marathon. I have hip and back pain everyday, but tend to be pain free when I run most of the time. The advice on long distance running seems to be vague, so I wondered if anyone has any experience of running a marathon with arthritis?
