Confused about your next run? Want to get reviews from people who’ve been there and done it?
Then you’ve come to the right place. That’s us in the pictures. Paul and Louise. We’re both runners, having bagged scores of events between us. We were talking one day and thought it’d be a great idea if someone could create a site where running events were listed and rated. That way if someone wanted to find a run that suits them they’d be armed with all the information they could ever need. So we decided to do just that! We’ve found it to be a real chore going through website after website, looking for an event. Then when you actually sign up you have no idea what to expect. We aim to provide you with:
- Information about the event
- Our own review and rating
- Pro’s and Cons
- Location and course information (like whether or not toilets are available!)
- Links to the event organiser, so that you can easily find out more
Lou is somewhat of a parkrun specialist, currently working her way through the parkrun alphabet. That will include a trip to Poland to bag a parkrun beginning with Z. Lou loves being a parkrun tourist and you’ll seldom find her at the same event two weekends in a row.
We have 7 marathons between us and dozens of half marathons. We’ve even completed a number of 20 mile races, which we term “other events”. In 2018 Lou completed 12 half marathons in 12 months, which was an amazing experience for her. I remember all too well running the Farnborough Half through the wind and the snow, and who could forget that hill!
We invite to you register with the site, which will enable you to post your own event reviews to help the running community further. To do so, go to the Registration page.
We’d love to have a vast library of events for runners to choose from and although we’re keen, we’re not able to run every event each year! If you’d like to get in touch with us head over to our Contact Form. Lou and I will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have.
