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.

The iconic Avenger Triathlons return to Ragley Hall, near Alcester in Warwickshire for the sixth time.

The start and finish for all three distances will be in the magnificent Ragley grounds, which also provide activities for all the family.The swim takes place in the boating lake and is based on a 650m lap. From the lake, it is a short, slightly uphill run to transition. The bike routes then take competitors along the drive and out into the beautiful, rolling Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside, returning to Ragley Hall via the imposing main gates and up the sweeping drive past the Hall itself. The run course, used for the first time in 2016, is based on a 5km lap through woodland tracks, gardens, historic outbuildings and fields of the estate.

This provides all the competitors with a chance to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery Ragley Hall has to offer. In 2017, competitors described the run course as tough but stunning, with great support all the way around.

Starting in the Medieval market town of Henley in Arden with its half timbered buildings and the earthwork remains of "Beaudesert Castle" the route passes through the village of Ullenhall and then the magnificent "Coughton Court" home of the Throckmorton family who were associated with the "gunpowder plot" of 1605.

The shorter route then returns to Henley passing huge swathes of newly planted trees and some of the remnants of the Ancient Forest of Arden in the form of "Bannams Wood" and "Clouse Wood".
