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.

10k Races in Wick November 2018

The first Men's 10k took place in Glasgow 9 years ago to raise awareness of men's health issues; it has now positively touched the lives of over 30,000 men and is a major event on both the running and health event calendars, attracting 4,000 men and growing each year! The Edinburgh event starts on the historic Royal Mile; this incredible city centre route then takes you into Princes Street Gardens, with the iconic Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop, onto Holyrood Park, where you take in the spectacular Arthurs Seat, and eventually on to a grandstand finish at Murrayfield Stadium.

While its brotherly Glasgow event has been around for a while, Mens 10K Edinburgh is only in its third year. Consistently around 40% of the men taking part have never entered a running event before. The life expectancy of a man in Scotland is, shockingly, still the lowest in Europe and three years less than in England and Wales. Suicide, in addition to other mental health problems, continues to be an issue of high significance to men in Scotland. Our aim is to help change this, little by little and the Mens 10K is how we are doing it!
