About Let's Do This

Discover epic challenges with Let’s Do This. Whether it’s running, triathlon, cycling or obstacles, Let’s Do This will help you find the best endurance events in the world.

Running in London

London has one of the busiest running calendars in the world, with over 400 events in the city each year. The jewel in the crown is undoubtedly the london marathon, drawing over 40,000 participants every year. It might be the biggest and the loudest and the most well known, but it's not the only big event in London. From the Royal Parks Half to the Where's Wally Fun Run, London's running scene is more vibrant than ever. Expect to meet awesome people from all over, and probably get overtaken by a Wally or two.

What you need to know about running

Running is the most accessible sport, you'll find parkruns, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons, and ultras happening all over London. All you need are some running shoes and you're sure to be able to find a beautiful London Park near you. 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.

For those new to running, there are plenty of London 5k and 10k events which are great fun and good training for a bigger challenge further down the line. See the sights with the Tower of London Run, or have some fun running for chocolate eggs at the London Easter 10k, there's an event to suit all tastes. Running a 5k tends to take anything from 20 minutes to an hour, and the 10k anything upwards of an hour. If you're struggling for motivation, we recommend signing up for one of the bigger events, with lots of people and a great buzzing atmosphere. Having the crowd behind you will really help push you over that finish line. `

Looking for a longer distance? Check out the half marathon and marathon. Two of the most famous half marathons in the London are the Royal Parks Half and the Big Half, but there are plenty of incredible less well known races like the Richmond RunFest Marathon.

Or, for the really dedicated runners out there putting some serious mileage in, an ultramarathon might be for you. An ultra is anything over the marathon distance of 26.2 miles. You don't have to leave the city to complete an ultra, the Thames Path 100 is right on the doorstep. Or, if it's a mini break you're after, the London to Brighton Challenge takes you the 100km to the coast. The key here is to take things slow, it's a (ultra)marathon, not a sprint. From our experience the competitors here are some of the friendliest, so settle in for some good conversations and varied scenery.

Training for a running event

Training can be tough so we recommend getting a friend or two to join you on your runs. This helps with motivation and can add a little healthy competition. Take a look at some of our pre-race training plans to help you reach your goals: 5k Training Plan; 10k Training Plan; Half Marathon Training Plan; Marathon Training Plan; Ultramarathon Training Plan.
