The North Of England's Top Race Listing

Tape to Tape tunners

Halloween is fast-approaching, & this Sunday the first of this year's 'spooky' events will take place. Runners will be out in their droves at Liverpool's Croxteth Country Park to Beat the Reaper - a spook-tacular 10K where participants must race the Reaper & beat him to the finish.
If that all sounds a little 'demonic' then maybe a trip to Eden would be preferable? The Heart of Eden Half Marathon in the beautiful Eden Valley is a challenging road race along the foothills of the northern Pennines with views, on a clear day, of Blencathra & the Lake District. A souvenir mug filled with warming soup & a roll will await each runner at the finish. Now that's heavenly!

Our race listing shows all the top events in the north of England & beyond. From fun runs to ultras, we've got them all.
