Run Leader Development Days

Booking now! The Run Leader Development Series is back by popular demand for 2019/2020 and is bigger and better than ever!

The Run Leader Development Days series of informative and engaging workshops are aimed at leaders and coaches from RunTogether groups and running clubs. They are designed to bring leaders and coaches together in an environment where they can network and learn from each other by sharing skills and challenges, plus expand their knowledge of managing and growing groups, and enhance their understanding of technical skills in running.

Over 800 leaders attended last year’s Run Leader Development Series and we have now expanded the 2019/2020 series to seven locations across the country:  Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, London and Manchester.

For the 2019/2020 series, we are offering three different day-long workshops in each location, with Days 1, 2 and 3 spaced out across the calendar (rather than running on consecutive days).
