Finding the right run for you
What distance would you like to cover?
10Ks are great for beginners. Marathons and Ultra Marathons are an option for experienced runners.
What kind of route would you prefer?
Would you rather run a flat route around a city or a more scenic route in the countryside?
Will you take part as a team or are you flying solo?
Virtual running events have been on the rise in recent years. They’re a great way to be a part of an international event from wherever you’re based in the world. Why not get your friends involved?
