Your Complete Guide to Stretching

Stretching before and after a run is about more than just a satisfying feeling – it’s vital for lengthening your muscles and helps you to avoid injury.

We’re here to help with advice on how to make stretching part of your running routine – and how to do it effectively.

Train

Whether you’re training for your first event or have your eye on a half marathon PB we’re here to support you every step of the way. Browse our training advice, learn how to get the most out of your running and download a training plan here.

We have listened to our runners and share their concerns around sustainability, so whilst still wanting to provide an important memento for each runner who takes part in a Great Run we are aware of the impact on the environment that unnecessary garment production has. As a result of this we have made the decision to introduce optional finisher tees to our Great Run events for 2023. Runner can choose to forgo their finisher tee shirt at the point of entry and in lieu of this we will make a donation to the National Trust Woodlands Appeal. Their ambition is to plant and establish 20million trees by 2030. Find out more here.

We will donate a portion of the fulfilment costs for each runner who chooses this option to the fund and commit that this donation to be a minimum of £20,000 in 2023. This initiative forms part of our pledge to minimise the environmental impacts of our events and move to embed sustainability at the heart of our organisation and culture.
