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 Newcastle October 2018

This 10k is set on the fantastic trails surrounding Penshaw Monument. This race has everything you would want in a trail race - great views set on lovely trails. We describe the route as undulating, some that have actually taken part in the race, go as far to say that this course is brutal for a 10k! This race also has great facilities for the whole family. Herrington Park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks. Penshaw was the first race in the Urban Trails series of races.
