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.

Run over two laps of a traffic-free city centre course, this event was first staged on 1996 and now attracts the best quality field for a 5k road race in the east of England.

The Lord Mayors 5k immediately precedes the annual Lord Mayors Street Procession through the city centre of Norwich. It provides an opportunity to race on traffic-free streets in front of an enthusiastic crowd estimated to exceed 50,000. Those who have taken part in previous years tell us that the buzz and excitement generated by these spectators is quite unique.
