Working towards a goal, such as a running event, is one of the most effective ways to stay motivated for regular exercise.

If you have recently completed the NHS Couch to 5K (C25K) plan, signing up for a running event is one way to keep going.

They found that, as well as being accident prone, it was often hard to find the next challenge. There was no one website where they could look up any sport and enter an event.

“You had to search through a handful of different sport-specific sites, none of which were easy to use or comprehensive,” says Wearn.
