Race Listings

London Marathon Runners on the bridgeLast weekend's race results are now available online at Check out the results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

It's impossible to overlook the major event being held this weekend - London Marathon. The race will see Mo Farah make his marathon debut as he faces off against world record-holder Wilson Kipsang, Olympic champion Stephen Kiprotich and last year's winner Tsegaye Kebede. For those who weren't lucky enough to get a place at London, the Frenchay 10K in Bristol offers a more laid-back alternative. First held in 1980, the race features a scenic and undulating course, starting and finishing in the University of the West of England's Glenside campus.

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