Race Listing

South Downs

We’re entering a slightly calmer period in the race calendar as we hit the height of summer. There are still lots of events to whet your appetite and keep you motivated though. There will be a regal feel to the Great Newham London Run with participants descending upon Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  Trail lovers can test their mettle at the North Downs Way Marathon. And runners will be going underground (literally) at the fourth Tunnel 2 Towers event, with the race taking participants through the empty Rotherhithe Tunnel under the Thames. Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
