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.

This race has taken place on two previous occasions: in 2013 it was called the Longtown 10, in 2014 the Sport in Action 10. For several reasons it was then put on the back burner, but the time is right for it to return, so 2017 sees the first running of the Arthuret 10. The route is mainly on quiet country roads and starts from Longtown Primary School at an elevation of 63ft. It gradually climbs to 416ft at approximately 5.75m, so don't go mad at the start! But what goes up must come down and the next 4.25m is all downhill to the finish.
