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.

5k Races in Wick August 2018

The NORTHUMBERLANDIA TRAIL RUNNER is a series of trail races to suit all abilities. The routes snake their way through the breathtaking sculpture at Northumberlandia making this a fun and scenic place to run. Thanks to Northumberland Wildlife Trust the paths are well maintained so although it is a trail run the paths are hard packed and easy to run on.

The start/finish area is on the main field next to the car park. Northumberlandia has its own cafe which is perfect for those post race cakes or refreshments for the family while you take on The Lady of The North.

Be sure to cheer on your fellow competitors mid race on the crossover sections as you undertake the amazing trails!
