August is the perfect month to get involved in race events; we’ve had a scorching summer to get in shape and dust off the running boots after a ruthlessly frosty winter kept a lot of us inside- and August is packed with great races all over the UK to take part in.

Are you looking for 5k races to get involved with?

Maybe you’re a seasoned runner looking for new challenges? Or you are thinking of taking part in your first race? Here we share some of the best races to look out for in August that everyone can get involved with:
