What you need to know about Running

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

An exciting and exhilarating off-road 10k or 5k multi-terrain run which starts at the foot of Brean Down, then it's straight up the steep hill to the top! The route then follows some more challenging hills, with a gradual descent to the fort and the turnaround point. The 10k runners will endure this taxing route twice.

Brean Down Challenge 5/10k – September

This multi-terrain 5/10k will start from near the foot of Brean Down, ascending straight into the steep hill to the top. You will then be taken up and over the challenging undulating hills with a gradual descent to the fort which is the turnaround point. The route will then take you along the adjacent side and back down to the finish. The 10k runners will then take on this enduring route for the 2nd time. There will be a halfway water/feed station just past the 5k point.

The route will again be marked out with run route sign signs and orange/yellow waymarker flags throughout the course, ensuring that Brean Down is preserved and not damaged in any way.
