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.

If theres something we like here at Phoenix Running (if you hadnt noticed) its a BIG medal. We also like to collect our race numbers from events that we run in ourselves. When youve run a marathon or two with your race number flapping in the wind, it somehow feels right for it to be part of things. So that got us thinking What about a race number that actually becomes part of your finishers medal. and there you have it the first and only race number / medal combo.

Please note to qualify for the MEGA medal, you have to COMPLETE BOTH DAYS MARATHONS. Each day is a separate event and you get one of our classic PHOENIX finishers medal if you just do one of the days. But if you complete both marathons, then on the second day your finishers medal will be the MEGA Its a Numbers Game Medal at a whopping 220m x 180mm x 5mm thick.

Official Partner

This genuinely epic ultra starts in Lynmouth and finishes in Ivybridge (100 miles) with the option of continuing to Wembury if you finish within 30 hours (111 miles). You will run through the night and anyone who gets to Ivybridge inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, and isn't to be taken lightly. You'll be crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy.

Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.
