At Women’s Running, we are always on the lookout for great running events where you can get active and inspired, but we’ve found that the process of discovering and entering events can often be pretty tedious. Let’s Do This are changing this whole process, with thousands of running events on their platform to choose from, including 10Ks, half marathons and marathons. But it’s not just running races: if you’re looking for your next Ironman or you’re taking the plunge with your first triathlon, Let’s Do This should be your first port of call. You can even search within your local area, for events such as half marathons in London, so it’s never been easier to find your perfect race.
Getting women involved in sport
One of the main aims of Let’s Do This is to inspire new runners to achieve their goals and have their next great experience. They believe that anyone should feel able to get involved with races, whatever their sporting background or ability. Not only are 30% of their users first-time racers, but 60% of their users across the whole platform are female. Let’s Do This supporter Serena Williams reflected that “Women are especially less likely to participate in marathons and obstacle races, so it’s really important there’s a platform encouraging people to step out of their comfort zones and make a positive difference in their lives.”
To enable all runners to enjoy their events, Let’s Do This prides itself on fantastic customer service. Thanks to their modern technology, the Let’s Do This booking platform makes finding events in your area quicker and easier than ever. It now takes 50% less time for users to find cool events near them. It even includes interactive maps and weather forecasts! Not only is all the event information you could need in one place, but you can also go through the booking process without being redirected to an external website. Over 90% of running events in London can now be booked directly from the Let’s Do This site.
On these bookings, Let’s Do This makes sure to look after their community by offering a best price guarantee (and £50 if you find the event for less elsewhere) and free cancellation up to four days before the event, so you don’t even have to worry about getting injured.
Let’s Do This believes that the best experiences are those recommended by others. After an event, people are encouraged to share their event experience by contributing reviews to help others find their perfect event for next time. If you are running your first marathon, you wouldn’t want the opinion of someone who runs a marathon in sub 3-hours; similarly, if you are an elite runner, you wouldn’t sign up to an event based on the review of someone wearing fancy dress. So you can make sure that your recommendation comes from a like-minded runner. So far, over 20,000 reviews have been submitted and over a million people have discovered events through Let’s Do This.
