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.

Come join us for a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run & 1/2 mile Kids Run - This is not your typical Turkey Trot!

These holiday runs have a mixture of dirt and paved trails. You are going to feel like a pilgrim running across a stream and through the woods. This run has great mountain and lake views. Come out and burn those holiday calories. Take a break from your holiday shopping and get out to Bonelli Park for a fun filled holiday run. Thinking about jogging with a stroller? The 5K course is all paved and fine for strollers but the 10K course is on trails and passes through a stream - and is not recommended for strollers.

The Golden Gate Half is more than just a 13.1-mile run through San Francisco.

Rather, it is a spectacular journey through this stunning City by the Bay. The chance to run across the Golden Gate Bridge is an experience unlike any other, but it is far from the only breathtaking moment youll enjoy along the way.

The fun begins along the shore of the San Francisco Bay. Youll line up at the storied Muni Pier in Aquatic Park, where you can take in magnificent views of not only the Golden Gate Bridge, but also infamous Alcatraz. From there, youll trek through both the Marina and Presidio as the bridge draws ever closer.
