The 401 Festival of Running



Check out our new video for 2019

The 401 Festival of Running brand showcases the best of what running is all about!


A 2-day Running Festival, open to all ages, all abilities across a number of different locations in the UK
Races include a 5km, 10km, and a Half Marathon plus an additional 6.1km for those that want to become Festival Challenge Finishers by completing a total of 26.2 miles over the weekend
Kids are well cared for as well with four individual races across the two days
Not only do our festivals include running, but we also pride ourselves on our 401 Events Villages which include local organic food vendors, pop up bars and a big screen Film Festival on Saturday evening

Enjoy good old fashioned family time, in a fun, friendly, active atmosphere
