Let’s Do This is the online company getting people offline.

We exist to inspire people across the world to come together and experience moments that make them feel alive. The first vertical we’re focusing on is mass participation sports events, where we’re proud to be the global leader.

We now take over 750,000 bookings every year, driving growth for our industry from the large-scale experiences like the UK’s Great North Run and San Francisco’s Bay To Breakers to hero races like the Hackney Half, the London Triathlon, or grassroots runs like those from RunThrough.

We’ve grown exponentially in the UK since our launch in 2017 and are now in the process of expanding within the US market with the same energy our brand represents. Our investors include Tier 1 VCs NFX, EQT, Y-Combinator and legendary individuals Serena Williams and Usain Bolt.

How did we do it? With an exceptional team. The Let’s Do This team brings in experience ranging from London’s fastest growing start-ups to the world's biggest tech companies, including Facebook, Google, Deliveroo, King and Skyscanner. Having just been named as one of the UK’s top 15 startups 2021 by LinkedIn, it couldn't be a more exciting time to join our team.
