What is Great Run Local?

Great Run Local is a network of free, weekly, friendly running events organised by fantastic volunteers that can take place on any day and time of the week. Great Run Local runs are 2km and 5km in distance, to encourage participation, ideal for beginner runners and families as well as regular runners.

All Great Run Local events provide a social start and finish area for participants to meet new people, interact with other runners, share their stories and offer encouragement to each other. The weekly runs provide participants with the opportunity to attend frequently and maintain the fitness benefits associated with running regularly.
