What is Longest Day Run?

This is the website for the exciting running event which is open to runners of all abilities wherever they are in the world.


The 5th, FREE to enter, event will take place on the weekend of 25th & 26th June 2016.


The challenge is quite simply to run as many miles as you can over ANY 24 hour period of your choice during that weekend.


You can do one long run, 10 shorter runs, or in fact any combination of runs over your 24 hour time period. The aim is to set yourself YOUR challenge, and for everyone who takes part to encourage each other and help them to achieve their goal.


Run on your own, with friends or with your running club. You can run on a treadmill, on the road or up in the fells. If you're not free on these two days then do it when you can. The whole point is to take part, achieve a new goal and maybe raise some money for a charity of your choice in the process.


Longest Day Run is whatever you want it to be. It has no rules and no boundaries, no minimums and no maximums. It's for each of us to get out of it what would make us happy. We want Ultra runners to attempt to run over 100 miles and novices who have never run before to run at least one mile. We want people to challenge themselves and each other to achieve a new milestone, to do something they haven't done before.
