Take your first step in running with a free 5km race place from Bupa

To help more people get active and lead healthier lifestyles we are giving away 2000 free race places for new runners in the Bupa Great Run Series 5km events.

These shorter events are perfect for beginners and to help you stay on the right track we will provide advice and support at every step, from training plans to advice on the right kit and opportunities to speak to our running and injury experts on Facebook.

You might prefer to run alone, but our 20 years experience in running has taught us that for many runners, training with others helps maintain motivation. So we’re encouraging you to share this experience with a friend, once you’ve signed up for your free race place you’ll be given the option to share with your friends. 

Please note you must be over 18 years old to enter this competition.

Sorry this competition is now closed, but come back next year to register for a free race place for one of our 2014 events.
