What happens at the club runs?
All our groups a very slightly different but what normally happens is the runners gather from about 10 minutes before and may do warm ups, the run leader for the session should be there and will pass round a piece of paper for runners to write down their names so we can keep a record of numbers, we also ask that new runners complete a short form which includes an e-mail address so that we can add to our weekly mail with information about what is going on in the club.
New runners should say hi to the run leader, hopefully they will spot you anyway.
The run leader will take any paperwork that needs to be given to the club and when ready will give a briefing with any club notices or information about the run.
Then the run will take place. Do speak to the run leader if you have any problems or concerns.
At the end of the run there should be the opportunity to give feedback or comment and talk to other runners. If you have any issues do speak to the run leader or use contact us above.
Remember to do your cool down stretches.
Please read the runners guidelines below as well.
Guidelines for runners on club runs:
Obey the instructions of the run leader
All runners should come to the run having completed warm up and undertake cool downs after the run
If you have an injury or any medical issues, please make it known to the run leader before the session starts
We would prefer you not to wear headphones/MP3 players
Please do not run more than two abreast on busy roads, redways, pavements, or multi-use trails and keep left. The goal is to share the redways/roads/trails, not hog them – be friendly with all others you see – it is easy to say morning/ evening
On designated route runs please stick to the route
Ensure you have a suitable drink to take with you or for when you return
Be mindful of your language and conversation content. Adult conversation does happen on group runs, but it should not go so far as to create an uncomfortable atmosphere for the group
All runners should wear appropriate clothing, i.e. reflective clothing/accessories and consider running with a head torch if running in the dark or if it will get dark during the run
During runs we will do our best to look after you, if you have any issues, we will help you as much as reasonably possible. If you leave a run then please inform the run leader and you will then be responsible for yourself
If running with a dog it must be comfortable running with a group and kept under control at all times. You are responsible for your dog
We do not allow unaccompanied runners under 16 on our runs. If a person under 16 runs with us then someone must run who has parental control and that person must check with the run lead, they are happy for the person under 16 to take part
If running with a buggy you may wish to check with the run leader to the suitability of the terrain, session prior to the session
Those runners who do not follow these guidelines will not be allowed to run with the group
