Little BIG Running Weekend
Sunday the 24th October 2021, Save the date.
Please put in notes how many children will be attending with you.
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 BIG Running Weekend in October 2021.
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. We are close to finalising the day's 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.
The 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.

The feedback from 2019's event was utterly amazing:
"Thanks for a great weekend! I learned something at every session and really enjoyed it from start to finish. The knowledgeable and encouraging run leaders made it fantastic. Thanks for all the hard work!"
"The weekend was superb, the workshops were the best I have ever been on. Short concise workshops but with plenty of time to practice and with progressions available, all run by amazing friendly and knowledgeable coaches and supported by a brilliant crew. I have learnt so much in such a friendly environment with some really lovely like minded runners who were out to improve their trail running and everything we covered I can take away and implement even in the flatter land of Milton Keynes. Thank you all."
