Race Listing


Need reminding that the clocks go back this weekend? Sunday’s Clock Change Challenge should do the trick. The Wiltshire event features 10K and 5K options for participants to ‘clock’ some fast times. Another race to, ahem, watch is the Great South Run. The 10-miler will see Portsmouth’s Clarence Esplanade transformed into a sea of colour as thousands of runners take on the fast and flat 10-mile course. 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!
