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.

Get involved in the beer mile relay, the legendary pub crawl run, secret adventures, treasure hunts & wild swims, among other adrenaline-spiking activities like surfing before you ease off with some well deserved wellness activities; from outdoor yoga sessions through to an invigorating soak in the open air hot tubs.

The Port Talbot Half Marathon is a exciting run through the stunning Afan forest. Leave the beautiful surroundings of Glyncorrwg Ponds and follow the former railway route down the valley to Pontrhydyfen (birth place of Richard Burton). From here, you turn and follow the opposite side the valley to return to Glyncorrwg.

Without doubt this is one of Wales' most scenic races and without doubt it is one of the cheapest half marathon offering all the participants the same if not more than some of the big city races. We offer electronic chip timing, 4 water stations, bespoke event technical t-shirt and medal plus the all important goody bag.

The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k takes place along the beautiful and iconic sweep of Swansea Bay, open to all abilities aged 15+. The course is a firm favourite with both experienced and first time runners, as the fast and flat course is a perfect introduction to road running, and perfect for improving your personal best. All of this, combined with a great family atmosphere resulted in the race winning Silver for Best 10k in the UK for the past two years in a row at The UK Running Awards.

We also provide a great introduction to road running for children with our Junior 1k, 3k and 5k distance races. Our fun, friendly atmosphere ensures everyone has a great time, with parents allowed to run with their little ones too! Our junior races are so popular, we were voted the Best Child-Friendly Event in the UK in The 2017 UK Running Awards.

The Gower Ultra 50 challenge is to complete a 50-mile circumnavigation of the stunning Gower peninsula on foot. It is suitable for both runners and fast walkers. The Gower Ultra Bach (Little) is a new race for 2018 following 34 miles of Coastline from Llhanrhidian to the Mumbles.

For 2018 we're shaking it up a bit. There's a new start and finish location for the Gower Ultra 50 - in the Mumbles- and a new shorter 34-mile option. The great support and stunning route remain the same.
