ounded by GB Professional Triathlete Tom, Relish Running was created to help build great sporting events, replicating his own experience of racing around the world. Having trained as an experienced athlete for 8 years and finished in the top 50 professionals in the world at both the 2008 and 2009 World Championships, Tom came home looking to replicate a similar competitive environment that all the family could enjoy, whilst continuing with his own coaching for those wishing to train.
Tom’s initiative is not only providing great races, but he’s also helping to save the planet too. The organisation off sets their CO2 production by planting trees with Trees For Life. They want to make all races carbon neutral by planting trees which will absorb the same volume of CO2 that is created in relation to their events.
Choose from a range of off road running races fit for all the family, with distances ranging from 100m to 50km, all held in spectacular locations. An event can be entered into as an individual race, or you can enter the majority either as part of a Series (4 events for the price of 3 in the same location) or as a Challenge (build up from 5km to your first half marathon, or 10km to marathon distance). Whichever event you enter, you’re assured a great medal and buffet of tasty treats at the finish line.
All of Relish Running’s events are held in amazing settings across the beautiful English countryside, with the upcoming runs being held on a working National Trust Estate at Killerton, offering far-reaching views across to Dartmoor, Haldon and the Exe Valley, and Eastnor Castle with its winding wooded deer park, that also doubles up as Land Rover’s rugged test centre training ground.
