Run Your Heart Out Is Back!!!

Well its took some time to get back up and running.

A bit of history

Run Your Heart Out was first set up in 2016 as part of a personal ‘college’ project via the domain of As a keen runner I was always on the look out for races but the biggest issue I found was that there was never a definitive list of running events. To find ‘all’ available running events you had to use many different websites so I thought it would be good to have a running events directory to show all events which is no mean feat.

Running events can be hard to find using only one website

There is no definitive list of running events.

To find ‘all’ available events you have to use many different websites.

The previous incarnation was running for about a year however I was trying to add all of the events myself which is a much bigger task than you might think as it soon becomes apparent that there is a huge amount of events across the whole of the UK. Due to ‘lack of time’ I decided that I couldn’t keep up with the task of adding the events so I decided to ‘close’ the site with the aim of coming back to it.


After a longer than anticipated ‘break’ I decided that it was a good time to re-imagine the service. Whilst the aim is the same in that I want an ‘always free‘ service for all users, both runners and Event Organisers, the way that this aim will be achieved is different as it will now be less dependent on my time as I won’t be adding the events. Adding the events will now be done by the Event Organisers which means that the service is easier to manage and can simply be always ‘online and available‘ without being ‘too time intensive‘ to me around my day job, family commitments and of course my running.

No cost, no obligation, forever free to use!

How is the service funded?

The service is fully funded by myself, which has taken many weeks and months of my time to put together. All of the domains, web hosting and services are paid for me out of my own pocket. As a result, there may be some advertising and affiliate links on this service so that it can self-generate and cover its costs.

How can you help this service so that we can all benefit as runners?
