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 Leicester July 2018

This is an on road, off road popular 2 lap course Garmin measured set in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside starting & finishing from Desborough's own tourist attraction at the West Lodge Rural Centre.

One steady rise makes it slightly undulating but still a quick course and every chance for a PB. Hog roast and beer for after, vegetarians catered for, with an amazing goody bag including a bottle of wine, worth the entry alone!

Sure to be an entertaining evening!

Water Wipeout is the WETTEST fun run in the world of obstacle racing - so if you are remotely aqua phobic then this will really challenge you to the core!; Hosted at the world class venue National Water Sports Centre conveniently based in Nottinghamshire. We selected this venue specifically based on it's amazing attributes, such as the ideal location in the centre of England makes it accessible from most areas. Capacity - this venue can cope really well with literally thousands on site at any one time as it plays host to some of the UK's most notable sporting events. There are plenty of areas to change, shower and get refreshments too. But we mostly selected this particular venue for it's plentiful supply of the wet stuff. Last year we introduced the white water course as an obstacle where you have to jump into the fast flowing water and boy did everyone enjoy that experience!
