London based runners are probably already aware of the Run to the Beat half-marathon, held in Greenwich. This year, Run to the Beat is moving further afield to Wembley Park, offering a different challenge in the form of a 10k run.
I have never participated in Run to the Beat before, but I’m really excited this year to be taking part for the first time. Showcasing some of the biggest bands in the UK music scene, tunes are played to the runners as they pound their way around the course, making a truly unique event. Just don’t ask me who the biggest names in the UK music industry are because I’m stuck in the wrong decade, but Jesse J headlined last year and even I know who she is. For runners who enjoy running with music but don’t want to miss the support from the crowd, this must surely be an event to consider.
This year’s event takes place on September 14th, making it the perfect preparation for those building up to a spring marathon. If you want to take part and join 15,000 runners, you can enter here.
