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.

On the go since 2004, the Mens 10K Glasgow has firmly set itself as THE run for men in the west. The life expectancy of a man in Scotland is, shockingly, still the lowest in Europe and three years less than in England and Wales.

Suicide, in addition to other mental health problems, continues to be an issue of high significance to men in Scotland. Suicide is the biggest killer of young people (18-34) in Scotland and almost three out of four suicides are by men. Our aim is to help change this, little by little and the Mens 10K is how we are doing it!

The Welsh 3000s Run Challenge is a 1 day, fully guided and supported run along the highest mountains of Wales. The traditional 24 hour challenge to complete the 15 peaks is a tough ask, but doable for most moderately fit walkers who have prepared well. We will be moving relatively quickly for this challenge, and shall be running sections where appropriate, to gain an overall completion time of around 15 hours. We shall average a fast walking pace, using the more runnable ground for some running where possible, allowing ourselves the time to pace ourselves appropriately by taking it easy on the long climbs. This however, is dependant on a number of factors, not least the weather conditions. The route represents a real challenge, and is undertaken in a mountainous environment where previous experience is absolutely necessary for those taking this on. The route involves a lot of ascent (12,000ft), and at over 27 miles in length it represents a serious undertaking for those that are well prepared. Some (Grade 1) scrambling that never gets very difficult, but on Crib Goch the exposure is significant and participants must have a good head for heights and be comfortable in the mountain environment. Yes, its tough, but the rewards for those that take it on are truly great. The Welsh 3000s one for 2018?! A maximum of 8 persons are permitted for this challenge.
