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.

Marathon events in Dover July 2018

Fowlmead Country Park, near Deal, East Kent, now known as Betteshanger Country Park, has a lovely tarmac cycle track and we're going to use this to host what we hope will be a very straightforward mid length ultra that will appeal to a range of runners, including those who want to step up to mid range but without the complications - no navigation, no mud, no kit required, an aid station every 2 miles - and those who aren't sure if they can run 50 miles. There are no DNFs at this event, anyone may drop down to the 12 hour challenge. This is a 50 mile run with a strict 12 hour time limit.
