Jubilee Relay Moel Famau

This event is completed in teams of 2. Its very simple in theory - 1 runner runs up to the summit of Moel Famau, then hands over the timing band to their teammate who descends as quickly as possible to the finish! The initial section through the fields is marked and MUST be followed, however after a few hundred metres and once out onto the open hillside, YOU choose your route! For descending runners, its obviously the other way around - descend via whichever route you want, until the final approach to the finish where you pick up the marked route through the finishing fields.

The Fan Dance Summer Edition

The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km non-navigational race over two sides of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. This infamous route has long been a part of SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) Selection and is considered the yardstick of a candidate's potential to perform well on Test Week and ultimately pass the Special Forces Selection programme.

Starting at the iconic old red phone box the race goes straight up to the summit checkpoint of Pen Y Fan and, after descending "Jacob's Ladder", continues along an undulating stone vehicle track (the "Roman Road") to the second checkpoint which also serves as a tea stop and turnaround point. Then, taking the route in reverse, racers climb back up "The Fan" via Jacob's ladder and pass through the summit checkpoint a second time before legging their way back down to the finish at the old red phone box.

The route is a real lung buster that throws everything at you, including the elements. There are steady slopes that allow a solid jogging pace, shocking inclines that have you almost on your hands and knees, loose stone tracks that require cautious foot placements and a forested vehicle track that allows for some rapid going. Even SAS recruits at the height of their physical abilities regard beating the clock in this event as a serious challenge, and all know its capacity to hurt. Aside from the race aspect of this event, just getting to the end is an accomplishment and something to be proud of.

The Fan Dance is open to ANYONE looking for a unique challenge: be it personal, competitive, as a sponsored participant in aid of your favourite charity or as part of a team building exercise. As per real Special Forces Selection, the event will be staged in both summer and winter (both load-bearing and clean fatigue).

Whole Earth Man V Horse race
Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales, United Kingdom

The event began in June 1980 following a chat over a pint (or three) in the back bar of the Neuadd Arms Hotel. The then Landlord, Gordon Green, overheard two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain. The enterprising Gordon, never one to miss an opportunity to promote Llanwrtyd Wells and improve business at his hotel, decided to put it to the test. And so began Green Events and its first, longest standing and now internationally acclaimed event, Man v Horse.

The course was changed in 1982 to provide a more even match between the man and the horse, resulting year on year in very close finishes - sometimes with the horse winning by only a few seconds. It took 25 years before a runner finally beat all the horses - in 2004 Huw Lobb won in 2hrs and 5mins, beating the fastest horse by 2 minutes. His feat was repeated 3 years later by Florien Holtinger, but the horse has remained unbeaten since.

2014 saw the introduction of electronic timing, with each competitor wearing a tag which automatically recorded their times. This has improved on the timeliness and accuracy of the results published, which can be found on the Results Base website.

The Park Hall 5km race has been going for over 30 years. At just over 3 miles on the roads and pavements around Park Hall, it's ideal as a first race or just for judging your speed over a short distance. Most clubs have a 5km in their club championships and this race is great, as it is held on a summer evening, not in the depths of winter like some other 5km races. We have one club member (Steve Nicholls) who has completed every single race since it first began.

Offa’s Dyke 15
Hay-on-Wye, Wales, United Kingdom

In case you missed the history first time around, for 25 years between the years 1977 and 2001 it was THE off-road race to do, with runners coming from all over the country (and abroad) to complete this beautiful but challenging race. Foot and mouth caused its cancellation in 2002 and following this the race organisers were unable to get momentum back to re-start this popular race.

In 2015 we had the help of David Joyce, the original Race Director to get it re-launched, and we are delighted to say it didnt put him off and he is back with us, we couldnt do it without him.

Whilst it broadly follows the Offas Dyke Path, one of the quirks of this unique race is that to reduce the number of stiles runners must navigate, David has once again gained permission of every farmer/land owner to have the race go through their land and open their gates.

We hope the spirit of the event which was there every year from 77-01, will continue and youll look forward to this great race.

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.
