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.

Immortal Triple Crown – Stourhead

Immortal Triple Crown – Stourhead
Official Partner

Immortal Triathlons have enjoyed great success at Stourhead in recent years. We all know not everyone is up for a swim, and maybe cycling is not your thing. In 2018 the event sold out and over 220 Immortal athletes were unleashed on the Immortal 10k route with great results, and for 2019 we are hoping that you will be up for the challenge once more!

Enjoying the same fantastic finish line experience outside Stourhead House, the route will take in many of the stunning sights and views around Stourhead Estate and adjoining forestry. We cannot pretend this is an easy route, but to earn the right to become Immortal, it has to be tough.

Around 50% of the route is on really quiet closed country lanes, with the remainder on forest tracks and trails. With a total of 770ft/235m of climbing

The race will be a mass start, under the Stone Arch of the driveway to the house, at the 10am on Saturday 11th May 2019. Running through Stourton village, then past the Lakes before taking a right turn crossing a dam before starting the run for the trees. In early May the flora and fauna is guaranteed spectacular, and the sights and smells will distract you from the shift you are putting in!

The loop through the forest takes in some beautiful clearings and pasture before returning to the Dam which supports the lake, under the Stone Arch before returning through the village and onto the driveway to receive the respect and applause from the gathered spectators and families. A fantastic medal and a technical t-shirt will ensure the race stays long in the memory.

Ultramarathon events in Bath

The Mendip Way has to be one of the South-West's best-kept secrets. Like the Cotswolds' slightly more streetwise, alternative cousin, the Mendip Way features the spectacular Ebbor and Cheddar Gorges, the brutal climb up to Crook's Peak, incredible views over the Somerset Levels and to the circular Cheddar Reservoir, and then England's smallest city, Wells, with its magnificent cathedral.

Starting at the Market Town of Frome (for the whole of the Mendip Way) or from Wells (for the West Mendip Way only) you will run through a real smorgasbord of Somerset scenery. If you like hills then you will find plenty to enjoy here, but either way, you will be amply rewarded for climbing the hills with views to breathe life into tired legs and then a downhill cruise to help get your strength back. Some particularly scenic parts of the course are Cranmore Tower (the highest point on the whole route), the amazing panoramic views from Wavering Down, the quarries, and forests of Black Rock Nature Reserve, Ebbor Gorge and the lush pine forests of Rowberrow, but this route is absolutely jam-packed with stunning locations.
