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.

10k Races in Edinburgh September 2018

Charity Tickets

The annual event has grown in popularity since its inception three years ago and 2017 was no different. Around 5,000 runners headed down to the East Lothian coastline on a stellar year for the event, which saw three course records broken. Runners took full advantage of the stunning flat routes, taking in the famous Golf Coast along the way.

For the second year, the Scottish 10K kicked off proceedings, starting at 9am at Musselburgh Racecourse, before the Half Marathon got underway at 11am from Meadowmill Sports Centre. An estimated half a million pounds was raised for charitable causes, and plenty of personal bests were achieved!

Thousands of supporters lined the stunning East Lothian routes on what was a bright, mild September morning. The final furlong at Musselburgh Racecourse provided the perfect backdrop for runners to bask in their achievements and muster a sprint finish in front of the large crowds as the finish gantry came into view. Once over the line, runners were able to kick back with a beer or glass of champagne and a bite to eat in Musselburghs stunning picnic area.
