Signing up to a race is a great way to commit to training, helping you to get fit and develop a healthy exercise habit. So, if you want to get moving this summer, here are some races you might be interested in.
RunThrough Regent’s Park 5k & 10k – July 10th
RunThrough Regent’s Park is a great challenge to embark on if you are new to running as you can jog five kilometres past London Zoo and through one of the capital’s most picturesque parks, or opt for the ten kilometres course if you’re feeling confident.
Blackpool Music Run – July 17th
If you fancy a day by the seaside, head to Blackpool on July 17th for its famous Music Run. Listen to live musicians as you race five or ten kilometres along its promenade.
Stages are set up along the route, meaning you won’t need your headphones for this race, as you’ll have music pumping out of the stereos throughout the course.
Midnight Full Marathon – July 2nd
Those who have been running for some time and want a bigger challenge might be interested in the Midnight Full Marathon in Kent on July 2nd.
Not only will this see you complete 26.2 miles and tick off something on your bucket list, but you’ll be moving your legs in the depth of night.
This year marks the seventh Midnight Marathon and will kick off at 1800 in Dartford, enabling participants to make the last train out of the city.
Race To The Stones – July 8th
For the fittest among you, why not try Race To The Stones ultra-marathon on July 8th? This will see you run 100 kilometres throughout Oxfordshire.
It kicks off at Field Farm Bungalow in Watlington and will take runners over the oldest path in Britain, which has seen Romans, Vikings and mythical warriors set foot on before them.
More than 3,000 people take part in the event every year, finishing the race at the ancient stone circle in Avebury.
