Accelerate Running Events Co

Accelerate Running Events Co.

Formed late in 2018, having been given the opportunity to take over running of the Peak District's most popular Ultra and Trail Race series (taking place in one weekend).

As with everything 'Accelerate' the Running Events Co will be offering great value events.  Events which provide a challenge, yet encourage everyone to have a go regardless of their reason for running. Some will challenge your skills and endurance while others will be accessible to all runners, family and friends while providing a fun experience that you can talk about for years to come.

Accelerate Running Events Co: From short family oriented running races through to challenging Ultra Trail Races.
