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.

Rainford High Technology College kindly host the Rainford 10K and have done since the event began. This gives us a central location to base the start and finish of the race around. It is also the home to our fun run route.

There will be many stalls and attractions available in the school grounds including food and drink, bouncy castles. face painting and post/pre-race massages.

We have a prize giving ceremony towards the end of the main 10K race which is well worth sticking around for. Businesses from around Rainford and St Helens kindly donate prizes for the various categories, and our fastest runner will be awarded the George Faulkner Memorial Trophy.

The fun run will start from the Schools AstroTurf at 09:45am after a warm up on the bus turning circle at about 09:35am.

The Knowsley Harriers AC have been putting on a free 5k monthly race since 2011. The aim is to give runners of all abilities the opportunity to test themselves over the 5k distance in a fully licensed race over an accurately measured course. The race is held over a super fast, flat all tarmac surface with PB potential. In 2018 we have decided to use the 5k race series to raise both funds & awareness of Liverpool Sunflowers Cancer Care Centre for the good work it does.
