Thank you for visiting our running events website. We have set up this website for a number of reasons.
First I am a keen runner having completed 20+ half marathons in the last 4 years,inlcuding two created by by myself, namely the infamous Baldock Beast and the Ashwell Multi-terrian Half Marathons.
Secondly I want to encourage more and more people to take up and enjoy running. It is free and all you need is a decent pair of trainers. So whether you are a serious runner, a novice runner or indeed someone new to running, young or old, I plan to arrange runs that cater for your needs. In future years, as well as the Half Marathon and the10 Miler, I plan to organise shorter races such as a 10k course. (Coming in Spring 2018!)
Thirdly , I want to raise money for charity. During my half marathon days I raised £1000s for charities. Through fit4thechallenge I want to continue this trend,by giving at least 15-20% profit from each race to charity.
Fourth and finally, through these events I hope to put the local villages and businesses on the map. I live in a lovely area of the country and I want others to see this.
Fit4thechallenge is now into its fourth year of organising running events. Last year, was the biggest year yet for fit4thechallenge with both the Bassingbourn 'Brainstrust' Half Marathon and the Bass Belle 10 Miler selling out! As a result of this both events will have the entry limit increased from 450 to 475.
Both of these events will be run again in 2017 again with Brainstrust the official race charity.
