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
Following the latest guidance set out by the government in relation to social distancing rules and COVID-19, you are now able to meet with one person from outside your household to exercise outdoors while following social distancing guidelines.
And what this means for you as a RunTogether Run Leader or Runner is that you can now use RunTogether again BUT only for 1-2-1 runs with social distancing rules adhered to.
- As a Run leader you list your session (and you can list as many sessions as you want) via the website or your Run Leader App as normal but limit the group to one Runner.
- As a Runner you book onto the 1-2-1 session listed by your Run Leader, again using the website or the Runner App
Each 1-2-1 run must be led by a Run Leader, just as you would have done so pre Covid-19, to ensure both the Leader and Runner are insured (when using RunTogether).
And of course you don’t have to use RunTogether to do any 1-2-1 run but wouldn’t it be nice to be running as part of RunTogether again, albeit each run there will only be two of you.
And fingers crossed we will soon be able to run with more in groups of more than two but until then we can at least meet 1-2-1.
But please don’t forget, at all times, you must continue to observe social distancing guidelines when you are outside your home, including ensuring you are 2 metres away from anyone outside your household. Remember if anyone has symptoms or lives with someone that has symptoms, they should not take part and follow guidance from their GP.
THANK YOU AND STAY SAFE

Introducing Running @home
As we all find ourselves responding to the challenge of spending more time at home and not being able to run as we would normally; England Athletics is expanding its’ campaign to support Athletics and Running for Everyone @home, with a focus on ‘Running @home’ support and advice.
Please check back regularly as we will be updating this content. We will also be sharing this information via our social media platforms and our RunTogether e-newsletters, for those of you who have opted in to receive communications through your RunTogether registration.
