Little BIG Running Weekend 2021

Little BIG Running weekend

Save the date!
October 24th 2021, Woodland Discovery Centre. 

For one day only, well for this year anyway.
As part of the 10 Year Anniversary Celebrations of the Woodland Discovery the Accelerate Running Community will once again be hosting the Little BIG Running Weekend in October 2021. This will be followed by the Full-On, High Octane BIG Running Weekend in March 2022.

For this year we are going with the Little BIG Running Weekend: a one day, full on outdoor extravaganza of Running. There will be led runs, family sessions with running games, technique and coached sessions.  As always the regular groups that happen each week – WoodRun, Accelerate Trail Runners and Running Past50 – will be hosting their own mix of running and coached sessions.

  • The highlights of the day will include:
  • Led Runs over the Blue Route (5k and 9k), Red Route (14k) and the Black Run (24k).
  • The ever popular Up and Down Hill Running Technique coached sessions
  • New this year will be an update to the Family WoodRun – The Games We Play. This should be total madness and much fun from what I hear.
  • Another new one… For those that run for head space a led run exploring the mindful benefits of running.

As ever there will be the opportunity to try kit and gear from a select number of key brands that continue to support The BIG Running Weekend.  Scott Running and Saucony have both confirmed already.
We are close to finalising the days program and we will bring this to you in the next few days – we are just checking with all the Run Leaders and Session Coaches that we have everything in order.

Cost for the day is £6 per person, with under 16 family members going free.  You can join in with as much or as little as you like on the day.
