CONGRATULATIONS to GOTM RunTogether Kingfisher Harriers!
After a brilliant visit to RunTogether Kingfisher Harriers, we found a very deserving winner of the 'Group of the Month' title! In April 2016, several qualified Leaders in Running Fitness (LiRF ) who had previously led small running groups in and around Redditch, in the Midlands, decided to join forces to form a larger running group - that’s when Kingfisher Harriers was born! Their very first session had a brilliant turnout of 70 budding runners; one year on they are providing supportive running sessions to 210 runners! They now have 16 Run Leaders with four more on their journey to completing the LiRF qualification. The group offers a range of sessions, including C25K, train and long distance. We were particularly inspired by one leader's story: "I had major heart surgery five months ago and I'm still in recovery but back up to running around 7k. I have started a heart rehabilitation group doing trail running, one of the group has even signed up to be a Run Leader." Nominate your group & email email@example.com
