  • Did the event in 2018

    Hilly with views to match
    Registration was super fast.
    Race briefing was fine.
    Route was well marked. Scenery was brilliant.
    2018 was dry but very windy - very glad of the mandatory kit to be honest.
    Mixed terrain so need to select shoes for that.
    Challenging and rewarding course.
    Marshalls were excellent.
    T-shirt, medal and a bowl of chilli at the finish.
    I’d recommend this race.
  • Did the event in 2017

    now this is not a race for the faint hearted. running snowdonia Marathon the weekend before probably wasnt the best prep (hence the DNF).Registration was really straight forwards and the morning breifing covered everything that you neede to know.this is a tough ol course but the climbs are worth every step. mixed terrian with some road running so please wear suitable clothing so that you are visable to drivers. from the 13 miles or so of the course that i saw, you will love this race.
  • Did the event in 2017

    The parking area looked massive on the map but soon runs out so get there early or be prepared for a mad dash round the local streets for a spot! 10 minutes walk to the start is easy and signposted, registration straight forward. Good to have use of the visitor centre for toilets and warmth but gets very overcrowded. I remember the start being a couple of miles of slow incline with decent scenery , nothing too tough. Much of the course is tarmac lanes, farm track and grassy track which I thought was a great mix. Only a few aid stations and basic, I would recommend being self sufficient. The hills are all bearable nothing too bad, but the very last one within a mile of the finish is a proper bastard when you’re dead on your feet. About a 20% gradient for about 500m roughly. Thankfully once over the top you can spring down to the finish. Shame the medal is generic, but you get a base tech shirt thrown in too

  • Did the event in 2018

    This race could be anything you wanted. A first foray in to trail running or a right laugh. It was tough going through streams and mud and there were some brutal hills and tricky to navigate downhills. However the views were gorgeous on a clear sunny day. I would’ve liked a veggie pie as an alternative to pork pie although there were little apple pies for us pork pie averse. It was a great atmosphere at the start although a reasonably low key event. Beware the ‘bog of doom’ where many a running shoe now resides. I miraculously managed to retrieve mine. All I all it was lovely and I’ll be booking this one next year. Highly recommend!

  • Did the event in 2018

    A well organised race and a great trail route. I had done previous runs along the route to recce it in advance and I was glad I had. It is marked out with yellows ribbons, and so you would probably be fine doing it without a recce, but because it is off road it made it much easier being relatively confident of the route. The marshals were all very supportive and there was plenty of snacks and drinks at the stations. Will be doing more Punk Panther races in the future :-)
  • Did the event in 2018

    My first race with Punk Panther - who organise trail ultra marathon - and it was awesome.Pre race I felt a bit out of my depth. I’ve not run 60k before nor done a trail Ultra marathon - but a few road marathons.Car parking organised a short walk from registration. Registration was quick and simple as was the kit check. A decent briefing and we set off on time.Before long the route was in the countryside and beautiful scenery. There were plenty of hills to negotiate which made it a decent challenge (for me).There were 8 checkpoints on the route. I took plenty of nutrition but didn’t really need it. I’ll know for next time. The checkpoints were well stocked and the marshalls couldn’t have been more helpful. They were all amazing, helping refill water and do anything to help runners.Cant say enough about the stunning route - just beautiful. Experience it for yourself.Although I didn’t know anyone racing, I was soon part of a small group, chatting and helping each other - wonderful to have support and company around the route - much more fun.At the end there was a great medal, super Tshirt and more food, drinks, cakes etc Again more than enough. Brilliant.Mill be back for sure. Wonderful value for money. I really hope people get involved - very much worth looking up and signing up to other races.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Another great IT'S GRIM UP NORTH (IGUN) race...I only enquired about entry to this race a few hours before the start but organisers were extremely helpful as always. For that I'm very greatful. Held at stunning Canon Hall Park, South Yorkshire. There was ample parking spaces, toilets and even a chance to buy a pre race coffee.Race registration was as easy as it gets. As with all IGUN events there was a nice, friendly pre race atmosphere & an indepth pre race briefing.There were 5 & 10 mile options, I chose to do the 10 mile race. Due to maintainence work at the park the course had to be changed with runners doing either 2 or 4 laps of 2.5 miles distance. These were complexed & varied laps with a mix of hills, grass, firm dirt tracks, paths & a little section of road. It didn't feel like a multi lap race because there was so much to enjoy.The very nature of all trail races means there are always potential trip hazzards but marshals were placed in key positions ensuring we were kept safe. These marshals are heros in my eyes, their support was massively appreciated. Feed stations at the end of each lap had water, cola & various sweet treats.Finishers got a beautiful, solid medal, beer & chocolate. There was also a feast of homebaked cakes, buns & biscuits and they even a vegan option.If you want a friendly, well organised race I highly recommend IGUN events. Can't wait for the next one.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Last minute sign up after melting in the heat of Roche Abbey.Another excellent IGUN race, I've done several of this companies races and I keep going back mainly because everything is the same (not the routes obv), excellent organisation, excellent cake, lovely routes and quality medals/goodie bags.Cannon Hall was no different.Different route to what was originally planned, which didnt bother me as it was only two scenic laps and the route was varied enough to keep it interesting.Marshall support was cheery and helpful.Regarding the medals, after a slip up from the supplier the ribbons had last years date on, I probably would not have noticed if i hadnt ventured on facebook but it's another little insight on how much they care and value their runners with how IGUN have dealt with the issue and promised to correct asap. Looking forward to the next one.
  • Did the event in 2018

    As always, the lovely people at IGUN have put on a great race. Super-friendly, value for money events, in lovely locations. This review is specifically for Cannon Hall, but applies to all their events.Every runner is valued, there are no cut off times and those who are last are celebrated and made to feel as special as the first place runner. There’s always a choice of distance and the marshalls and event organisers put in long, arduous hours at each event, making each one worthwhile.Goody bags always contain real ale and chocolate and the medals are custom-designed, always incorporating the Grim logo. The courses are off-road, in beautiful locations, that usually include some not-so-beautiful hills!

    Love, love, LOVE this race. It is an epic weekend of running with friends and I cannot recommend it enough.
    The course is undulating with changing terrain. While you can run it in road shoes, I do feel that trial/hybrid shoes would be better.
    I loved the availability of 24 hour food/drink.
    The marshall support was brilliant, especially in the wee hours of the morning. The course is stunning and i cant wait to run it again in 2019!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Second 24 hr race as a solo. I'm not one of the hardcore runners that stayed out all night, but still covered 88km, and thoroughly enjoyed all but the stomach troubles on the Sunday morning.

What you need to know about Running Events

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.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
