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.

Chorley Fire 10k

The Wesham 10k is one of the North Wests oldest continually running 10k road races. Held every November, the race is slightly undulating, running around the lanes of Salwick and Lea Town. The first Wesham 10k race in 1986 was completed by 154 runners. Since then the event has grown continually and regularly attracts a good quality, large field of runners. The Wesham 10k sold out weeks before race day in both 2016 and 2017 and is quickly becoming one of the most popular races in the North West.
