Race Listing

Northumberland Coastal Run

It takes two this weekend. That is if you’re taking part in the Gruesome Twosome Half Marathon. The multi-terrain half marathon involves running in pairs over beautiful countryside on the Lincolnshire Wolds. From two to ten, the TEN TEN TEN Sheffield 10K and 2.5 Fun Run returns to the Steel City. Despite being in the heart of the city, the event is said to feel like you are out in the countryside. With Halloween on the horizon, it’s only fitting that the Beat the Reaper comes to Liverpool. The spook-tacular 10k will see runners trying to beat Death himself to the finish line. 
Check out the results and upcoming events on our race listing page here.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up here, and good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
