It's important that all runners are booking through the RunTogether website. Please make sure you are checking your runners in, it allows everyone to track their sessions and helps runners work towards their personal goals. Checking your group in is quick and easy with our RunTogether app, it benefits Run Leaders by allowing you to monitoring attendance, access medical information and emergency contact details whilst out running.
A great way to encourage your runners to book on to sessions through the RunTogether website is through your own RunTogether social media pages. Use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay in touch with your runners in a fast and fun way. If you're looking for inspiration, RunTogether Tingley RunFIT host a brilliant Facebook page for their group.

Yorkshire & Humberside Winner: Natalie Sampson RunTogether Tingley RunFIT
Natalie dedicates hours every week to planning sessions that anyone can complete while ensuring her (now) more experienced runners continue to be challenged. Due to her pregnancy, she has been told she can’t run or speed walk at the moment. However she still turns up with the plans, supporting and following RunTogether Tingley RunFIT in her car, shouting instructions and encouragement from the car window. She has inspired many others to become Run Leaders to cover her when her baby arrives.
