Welcome to the home of RunTogether.
RunTogether provides fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunities for everyone: whatever your ability or time availability. We believe running / jogging is more fun and easier to become part of your lifestyle when shared with others. Try one of our group runs to find out for yourself. #BetterTogether #RunTogether
New guidance to help our RunTogether community get back together
England Athletics has today issued new social distancing guidance which includes rules for running groups, including RunTogether Groups.
In summary, our RunTogether group running can now take place in unlimited numbers IF your runs are within a Covid-19 secure environment*. Otherwise you can continue to run in groups limited to groups of 6 (1 leader to 5 runners).
*A Covid-19 secure environment means in summary – but please click here for further details:
Your group has a Covid Officer in place
Your group complies with all other social distancing guidance
Your group develops a risk assessment
Your group must capture all participants contact details which can be shared upon request with the NHS test and trace initiative
It has always been the case and it still is the case that a RunTogether Run Leader can only train 12 people at one time. Multiple groups can be run if the requisite number of Leaders are present.
Social distancing and hygiene is still to be maintained. For more information, click here.
New Virtual Coach Training Programme
We’re delighted to announced that the England Athletics new 10k Virtual Coach training programme went live on Monday 13th July offering exclusive access to a dedicated performance coach to support you on your journey whatever your experience, ability or goals.
Being part of the Virtual Coach community gives you a training plan, designed by your coach and delivered to you through an interactive training calendar for every day of the week. We will also teach you how and when to adapt your training based on changing circumstances or commitments. At the end of the 12 week programme, you’ll be invited to a virtual 10k competition just for your group followed by a week of recovery sessions - a total of 14 weeks including 2 weeks for free.
RunTogether group members looking to top up their 10k skills are able to access this 14 week virtual coaching service at a cost of £25 per month after the free trial period finishes. The Virtual Coach 10k training programme is still open for registrations and later this year, registration will open for training programmes across a range of other distances.
Weekly30 Run Challenge
Still not running enough because of the Government’s Covid-19 social distancing rules limiting our RunTogether group sizes? Well if so, we have an exciting new opportunity for you by way of a national virtual running competition called The Weekly30 Run Challenge. Fancy pitching your RunTogether group against another RunTogether group?
The Weekly30 Run Challenge is a free weekly virtual running challenge that encourages runners of all levels to compete each weekend whilst also enabling competition between RunTogether groups, England Athletics clubs and other sports.
