Race Listing

BFR lady

Fun is the name of the game this weekend as the Big Fun Run series comes to Southampton and Brighton. The free untimed 5ks are strictly for fun - no times, no pressure, no sweat. Well maybe a little sweat…
For those looking to exert themselves further, some longer events are on offer, involving considerably more sweat (but plenty of fun). Nocturnal runners will embrace the darkness at Lunar-tic Marathon and River Rat Race will see competitors running, swimming, wading, crawling, climbing, jumping, and splashing their way around an obstacle course in London. 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!
