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.

Our Numbers Game Marathon Double is back.
Now, if theres something we like here at Phoenix Running (if you hadnt noticed) its a BIG medal. We also like to collect our race numbers from events that we run in ourselves. When youve run a marathon or two with your race number flapping in the wind, it somehow feels right for them to be part of things. So that got us thinking What about a race number that actually becomes part of your finishers medal. and there you have it our race number / medal combo.

Two separate marathons on two days - Saturday and Sunday - from the Xcel Leisure Centre, Walton on Thames.
