Setting yourself a challenge is a great way to start a new year.
The boom of running over the last few years has inspired people from the young to the old and the large to the small. We don’t need to go into the positive effects of running here – you know what they are.
If you’ve always wondered whether you could complete a 5k, or want to better last year’s half marathon, give it a try in 2014. You’ve got nothing to lose – in fact, you have everything to gain.
YO U CAN DO IT!
Here’s some great London running events in 2014 to get point you in the right direction:
Where’s Wally? Fun Run – 5k or 10k
Run around Victoria Park dressed up as the Wally we all know an love, whilst raising funds for children who struggle with reading and writing, through the National Literacy Trust.
Bupa London 10,000

The route of this 10k London run goes through the City of Westminster and City of London. Take inspiration from London’s iconic landmarks and speed down The Mall to the finish line.
Run to the Beat – Half Marathon

Literally run to the beat coming from top DJs as they blast out motivational tunes for you. The power of music will get you over that finish line.
Royal Parks Half Marathon

Autumn is a great time to take part in a run – you have the bulk of the year to prepare. The Royal Parks provide a stunning setting for this half marathon.
