Runners are welcome on the Oxon Walks (although the title may put them off). There is a 40 or 20 mile choice. Next event May 7th 2005 so come and join us.

They're also more than welcome on the Durham Dales Challenge at the end of June - choice of 16, 28 and 52 mile routes.

Runners are welcome on all West Lancs events. We realise that numbers on events would be well down if runners didn't come along.

i don't mind runners,i won't run, if they won't walk.
On the Hope moors and Tors my aim is to get to the top of grindsbrook, before a runner overtakes me, so i find them an incentive, it's the mountain bikers that ruffle my feathers,

All our events (Daffodil Dawdle, Poppyline Marathon, Flower of Suffolk and Poppyline Fifty) all have runners. I'd have said that it's the minority of events which don't. You can even do the 100 ;-) I've even lengthened the Flower of Suffolk for 2005 to 26 miles. It is nominally 26 miles, but had dropped to about 24 or so in 2004. Some runners said "wouldn't have come if we had known, doesn't count for a marathon !". So I've both improved and added to the route especially for about a sixth of the participants !!!

East Lancs welcome runners on our challenge walks. On the 100K the CP's will open early enough for runners yet stay open long enough to cater for walkers. We try to please everyone.

The new Surrey Tops Event will welcome runners - in contrast to our previous Surrey Summits Event which was walkers only.
Perhaps we might see you.

Having injured my back a couple of years ago,I now find it painfull to walk for more than a few hours,but it does not bother me when I run,so to enjoy events I have to jog/walk/run them and so I would like to see mor events with the "runners welcome"printed with the details of the event.
