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.

The Winchester Half Marathon is a beautiful run that starts and finishes in the centre of Winchester outside the Guildhall. It's a very scenic route through the idyllic setting of the countryside and takes in landmarks such as St Catherines Hill, Winchester Cathedral and King Alfred the Great.

The route incorporates the high street, Romsey Road and Sparsholt Road to take the runners into the heart of the Winchester countryside.

Towards the end of the route, runners will pass by St Catherines Hill, though fortunately not up the hill! The race finishes back outside the Guildhall with a picture perfect view of King Alfred. This is a day for everyone to get involved from athletes, first time runners, charities, corporate teams, and volunteers.
