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.

Starting from the beautiful village of Langsett, this new and exciting race will twist and wind you through some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park.

From there you will hit a single track that changes in elevation several times, from the top of this climb you will be greeted to a spectacular technical decent which will land you right into the heart of the Derwent valley.

With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head-on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.

This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well-earned cuppa!!!!

The PEAK RAID 3s all have a score format so you can make them as hard or as easy as you like. A specially produced colour, bagged map (approx. size A4) of the area with the checkpoints overprinted will be supplied at the start line. For each event there will be between 15 check points. They can be visited in any order and each will have a points value. The secret is to collect as many points as possible with in the time limit of 3 hours. This may be a few high values check points or many lower value controls. Each area is different so your strategy may need to change each time.

You can finish the events early but dont be late as youll lose points per minute or part minute you are late..
