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
Monday 29th March - We return to group running!
The day we have all been waiting for now for quite a while!
On Monday 29th March, we can return to group running and in doing so we can all once again enjoy the many benefits of group running: friendship, support, fun, inclusion, learning and development in a safer environment.
While social distancing rules still apply,; we hope you feel the same as we do and now can't wait to be part of RunTogether and running with more than one person; although we do suggest you do continue to run with your running buddy in your group!!
Welcome back everyone -- We are #BetterTogether -- We are #RunTogether.

Sport publishes updated safety guidance for runners and joggers
British Athletics have published updated safety advice for runners and joggers as well as suggested guidance for non-runners.
The advice was refreshed following some recent high-profile cases of harassment of athletes training in public areas. The safety guidelines published are to support athletes, recreational runners and other sports people exercising in public to feel prepared for any eventuality.

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 Weekly30 Run Challenge for 2021 resets the 2020 challenge results so that competitors can see their scores count towards a new year!
