Top Runners of Instagram

These photographers offer variety in their ‘grams—more than just shots of their Garmins or evidence of their shoes slapping pavement. Although you will certainly find these portraits sprinkled throughout their feeds (they are, after all, runners), you’ll also find pictures that give your stream a steady mix of creativity and inspiration.

Run happy.
