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
Sign-up for our new practical Run Leader Development workshops!
Back for the summer of 2021 are our popular practical Run Leader Development Workshops – and you can book online now!
The sessions are targeted at qualified Leaders in Running Fitness (LIRF) and those who regularly support/deliver group running sessions. The practical days will build on the content covered in the virtual run leader development days that were held in the winter, but attendees don’t need to have attended the virtual days to benefit from the practical sessions.
Women's Running magazine recently featured an article about Guide Running: Putting your trust in your run buddy
Gill Jackson, registered as severely sight impaired, and her guide runner Suzanne Nelson are planning to run London Marathon together this October to raise money for the RNIB - after having completed the virtual version last year. Read their story from both women's viewpoints; attending the Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running workshop, how Gill runs alone with Suzanne but also with her running group, and their positive experiences racing together. Plus more of an insight into guide running.

Weekly30 Run Challenge
With group running and mass participation events currently restricted, the Weekly30 Run Challenge gives individuals a perfect incentive to run on a weekly basis whilst also proudly representing their club and their sport.
Once registered, participants complete their weekly 30 minute run at any time on a Saturday or Sunday and then upload evidence of their run to OpenTrack. Both total distance and average distance contribute to overall league tables and weekly winners are also announced.
The 2021 competition will finish at the end of May as lockdown eases and non-virtual competition restarts.
The Weekly30 Run Challenge for 2021 resets the 2020 challenge results so that competitors can see their scores count towards this year!
