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.

Cannon Hall is a stunning Georgian country house museum set in 70 acres of beautiful grounds. The idyllic village of Cawthorne is close by and the two are surrounded by ample fields and trails that provide the perfect setting for an evening race.

Cannon Hall was originally owned by Gilbert Canun, sold on in later years to John Spencer, despite significant investments the hall was found almost empty when it was sold to the corporation in 1951, it is to their credit that a passion to reignite the interest and passion for this beautiful historic building has resulted in it been a place by many visitors and families.
