About ARE Co.

Accelerate Running Events Co. came about in December 2018 when we took over the organisation of the Dig Deep races.

We are passionate about running, and about the Peak District, so this seemed the perfect combination to get us started!


We believe that running should be accessible, fun, social, and competitive (whatever that means to you – whether it’s winning prizes, getting faster times or completing a new distance). For many of us on the organising team running is a combination of all of those factors, and the most important thing is that we love to run!

We want to be able to offer races and events to suit all runners, and have plans to expand what we do over the next couple of years to include a community-led and inclusive trail 10k, a 100-miler through the Peaks, and possibly a 12 or 24 hour relay event. Ideas for new challenges are always welcome, so if you have an idea for a running event you’d like to see on our list then please get in touch and we will see what we can do!
