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.

The Yateley Road Race Series consists of three 10k road races, held every year normally on the first Wednesday of June, July and August at 7:30 pm from Yateley Centre.

The race is hugely popular and gained the sobriquet of "Best Mid-Week Series" from Runners World.

The races start and finish in the Yateley Centre - on the fields adjacent to Yateley Comprehensive School in School Lane, Yateley, Hampshire GU46 6NW.

A fun run of approx 1.5Km around the fields of the school was started.

This race grew in popularity over the summer with more local children taking part in each race.

We are emensly proud that many of the earlier fun runners entrants have now gone on to represent thier schools, counties and even country.
