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.

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.

The Castle Howard Half Marathon will see competitors undertake 2 laps of a spectator friendly almost entirely off-road 10.5K circuit.

Starting on the North Lawn, a few yards from the main entrance to the castle, competitors initially head downhill towards the Boathouse and Lake before circumnavigating the enchanting woodland garden of Ray Wood. The next 5K is on a network of estate tracks and bridle paths that wind their way in a clockwise direction, always in sight of the impressive Mausoleum, passing through the ancient Bog Hall, Spring Wood, Alamo Trekking Centre and High Gaterley Farm.

At the 7K point and just after the well stocked Feed Station, competitors enter the aptly named Pretty Wood passing the Temple of the Four Faces and a couple of curious pyramids. The last 1.5K of the route builds through the formal gardens of the estate starting with New River Bridge and moving onto the South Lake, The Atlas Fountain and the South Lawn.

A final, cruel, climb to the top of Ray Wood is a precursor to a view of the Finish Line from the reservoir at the top of the hill. Lap 1 complete, runners then rejoin the same circuit for their second before entering the 500m long spectator lined finishing straight, crossing the finish line with the world famous castle backdrop, to receive their medal and classy finishing line banquet!

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 39 or 24 mile mountain trail runs follow a classic sections of The Pennine Way, in the Cumbrian/Durham Pennines. Both routes run from Bowlees Visitor Centre in Middleton-in-Teesdale up glorious riverside trails, past Cauldrons Snout. From here they split, with the full route going via High Cup Nick to Dufton, and then over Crossfell to Alston. Both routes start at Bowlees and finish at Alston. They are linear routes with a bus ride to the start. The routes share common first and last parts with each other but are stand alone events in their own right. P39 is a key stage of the Pennine Way, and takes in the highest point of England outside of the Lake District.

The P24 route will leave Cauldrons Snout and head past Cow Green Reservoir and head for the South Tyne Trail. Whilst you will miss out on High Cup Nick and Crossfell, it is still a very worthwhile route and a good days run or walk

The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km non-navigational race over two sides of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. This infamous route has long been a part of SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) Selection and is considered the yardstick of a candidate's potential to perform well on Test Week and ultimately pass the Special Forces Selection programme.

Starting at the iconic old red phone box the race goes straight up to the summit checkpoint of Pen Y Fan and, after descending "Jacob's Ladder", continues along an undulating stone vehicle track (the "Roman Road") to the second checkpoint which also serves as a tea stop and turnaround point. Then, taking the route in reverse, racers climb back up "The Fan" via Jacob's ladder and pass through the summit checkpoint a second time before legging their way back down to the finish at the old red phone box.

The route is a real lung buster that throws everything at you, including the elements. There are steady slopes that allow a solid jogging pace, shocking inclines that have you almost on your hands and knees, loose stone tracks that require cautious foot placements and a forested vehicle track that allows for some rapid going. Even SAS recruits at the height of their physical abilities regard beating the clock in this event as a serious challenge, and all know its capacity to hurt. Aside from the race aspect of this event, just getting to the end is an accomplishment and something to be proud of.

The Fan Dance is open to ANYONE looking for a unique challenge: be it personal, competitive, as a sponsored participant in aid of your favourite charity or as part of a team building exercise. As per real Special Forces Selection, the event will be staged in both summer and winter (both load-bearing and clean fatigue).
