Running Events

Running is the world's most accessible sport: all you need is a pair of trainers and you're off. There are thousands of running events in the UK throughout the year, with an endless variety of options available. If you want to mix your running with fun, family, and friends, there are a range of 5k fun runs, charity events, and more to get involved with. These always have a great atmosphere, and are an amazing way to get started with running. There are longer distances available as well, so you can choose what challenge to sign up for next. 10k runs and half-marathons are hugely popular, and marathons are an amazing goal to aim for. The London Marathon is one of the most famous running events in the world, with over 40,000 participants each year. Ultramarathons are for those seeking a massive test of mental and physical resilience, and often take you off-road onto trails and rural paths.
