Here for you
Whether you’re contemplating your first ever run, your first 5km event or your first marathon, we are here to provide support and advice to help you to achieve your goals.
Tips and advice
To help you get started on your running journey, we have friendly advice on popular topics such as ‘walking your first run’ and ‘useful running kit’.
We often hear that physical activity is good for physical and mental well-being, but we also understand that having a mental health problem can make it difficult to get started. Find out how our #runandtalk programme, including a network of volunteer Mental Health Champions, has been created to support people who are experiencing mental health problems to start, get back to, or continue running.Find Out More
Find a Guide
Our aim is to make running accessible to everyone in England. If you have a visual impairment, our ‘Find a Guide’ database has been created to help you find a local guide runner. We have guides who run at all paces, whether you're a beginner or want to run on a track. All our guides have attended a Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running Workshop and have Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
We also have information on how you can become a guide runner.
Run Leader support
If you’re a registered RunTogether Run Leader, we have session plans, warm-ups and cool downs available to download. You can also find out about events and continued learning workshops for leaders.Run Leader Support
If you can't get along to a RunTogether Group or want to add more run sessions in between group runs, download our easy-to-follow training plans free of charge.
Clubs and competitions
If you’re keen to compete regularly in running races, you may prefer to join a running club rather than a group. Certain running races, such as some cross country leagues, require you to be a member of an England Athletics affiliated running club.
