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.

We welcome you to a whole new series; the Maverick X Series is designed to test your resolve and take you to the upper limits of your abilities. The Peak District X Series event is a must in your calendar for 2018 - it has been dubbed the Lake District of the Peaks.

You will leave the small village of Hope and head out towards Win Hill, an impressive climb taking you to 462m (1,516ft) with amazing views over the Ladybower Reservoir. The reservoir is situated in the Upper Derwent Valley at the heart of the Peaks National Park, in an area that is surrounded by magnificent countryside where water and woodland, topped by high moors meet in stunning fashion.

From there you will run the edge of the reservoir, but dont open the legs up too much as you will need plenty in reserve to tackle Kinder Scout which is a high windswept upland gritstone plateau, most of which stands at around 600 metres above sea level. The highest point is Crowden Head, which at 631 metres is also the highest point in the Peak District. This is the largest and grandest of the great upland areas of the so-called 'Dark Peak' and it forms an imposing and fascinating area. This route just has to be seen to believed.

The best ideas are always the most simple! Start at the bottom of the hill and ride or run to the top. About 3 miles, or 5 kilometers. lets just call it a long climb. The route follows the Kirklees Way, onto the Pennine Way, out onto the road at the top. First Wednesday of every month.

The new KotH 10K, this is just as simple, run up the hill, run down the hill, so choose to run or ride the 5k or run 10k.

Huddersfield 5k Park Series are new weekly 5k races run in July at the stunning Greenhead Park. The popular weekend parkrun regularly has 600 plus runners, so its the perfect venue to organize an accurately measured, UKA licensed, live chip timed 5k event series. The park itself is very easy to get to via the M62, or by bus or rail from all areas of the North West.

The Route is different than the weekend parkrun and contains fewer bends, twist and turns and for this reason we feel that the times will be much faster.

The races can be entered individually or you can enter all 4 races in the series (via the Series entry option). If you miss the series entry, then simply enter 3 from 4 of the races to qualify for the league. There are various prize options for both places and improvers in the league and superb individual and team prizes each race.

Ultramarathon events in Manchester July 2018

A very much back to basics ultra marathon, a non-stop, self sufficient, 73 miles with over 4000ft of accent. The anti clockwise route visits the Upper Colne, Spen and Holme Valleys and passes Dewsbury, Holmfirth and Marsden. Highlights along the route include a series of picturesque reservoirs including Holme Styes, Ramsden, Digley and Bilberry. Most of the route is way marked but you will require basic navigation skills (some of this you will be doing at night). Cut off time (21 hours) will be in force.
