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 predict that the zombies will attack Sheffield on Saturday 27th October 2018, so its up to you to gather your troops and take on the zombies. The undead will be lurking in the shadows of the trees for an estimated 5km. Are you ready to run for your life? Each runner will be equipped with a utility life belt which contains three life tags. The zombies throughout the course will be aiming to steal your life tags and youll have to be nimble and quick to make it past the infected hordes.

You will still be infected, but our decontamination team will do their best to reverse the effects at the finish line. We promise: 1. Zombies will only ever take one life tag at a time 2. There will be no intentional physical contact between Zombies and Runners 3. Zombies will never intentionally obstruct you The decontamination team will meet you at the finish with your medal and with a FREE glass of celebratory decontamination fizz.

No time limits, no age restrictions, no pressure - just LOADS of fun. Come and join us!

It's an exciting and creative multi-terrain trail 10k, attracting over 1000 runners each year. The event has a great atmosphere and is very well supported. The first edition was on the 10th October 2010, hence the funny name. The course has been created with a twist of creativity and innovation. It's not your regular road race, it is run on grass, road, paved paths and woodland trails. Its a really balanced mix, and introduces novices to the world of trail running gently. The course does have a few lumps and bumps, twists and turns, and all adds to the fun.

The route includes a few hills to offer a small challenge around the course in some of the most scenic Nottinghamshire countryside as well as the forest & past the lake.
The Autumn colors should make this a race to remember in this natural area of beauty.The race takes you into Nottinghamshire's National Nature Reserve, through private areas that were once part of the 10,000 acres Royal Forest of Sherwood where the woodland is dominated by native Oaks as well as other native trees including Silver Birch, Rowan, Holly, and Hawthorn. The reserve is also the site of Europe's oldest Oak tree plantation, containing over 1000 Oaks most of which are over 500 years old!
