The summer of 2012 saw history created when Jessica Ennis and Mo Farrah won Gold medals for Great Britain – watched by millions, running became popular and Naomi House has just the right race for you.
If you prefer long distances or would like to set yourself a challenge then the Brighton Marathon is the next biggest 26.2mile race after the London Marathon. The race goes along the famous Brighton coastline, past the pier and is a brilliant event to work your way up to London. If you prefer more of a scenic route then the New Forest Marathon and Half Marathons are good ways to see ponies and highland cattle en route. If you would like some culture, then Paris or Berlin are for you!
Half marathons are perfect for all abilities. Naomi House is proud to offer a variety of half marathons from Reading, to Basingstoke, to Silverstone around the famous F1 track to the historic city of Bath.
For all abilities and ages, 10k and 5k races are brilliant and very popular. Eastleigh 10k is one of the oldest, and then there is the famous Winchester 10k that is challenging, but brilliant to practise for hilly racing routes.
Each year we have places in the famous Great South Run which is a 10mile route around Southsea. The likes of Mo Farrah and Dame Kelly Holmes have completed this route and it is a massive event each year.
*** New for 2013 ***
The Festival Marathon Group has just launched Bournemouth Festival Marathon with a range of distances on offer for all abilities. This is a lovely area of the UK, with views out across the Solent to Old Harry Rocks.
The Naomi House running programme is sponsored by Unum.
