The Benefits of Running in a Group

Although it has been said many times before, the team here at BookitZone want to reiterate the importance of running with a group. After all, it has many benefits that can actually help you progress at a faster pace than you would if you were training individually. Read on as we go through a few ways why running with friends, colleagues or gym groups can benefit you…


With crime on the increase it is important that independent runners do everything they can to stay safe. After all, criminals are more likely to target vulnerable people who are on their own. That is why the team here at BookitZone recommend that runners team up and create ‘safety in numbers’. In addition to this, since full-time workers are often forced to run in the dark during winter, it is important to remember that vehicles are more likely to see large groups than lone runners.


Running as a form of exercise can be a gruelling task for beginners so it is important to find a supportive friend or two that can help keep you on track. After all, if there is nobody to hold you accountable for your workouts then you are more likely to talk yourself out of them. Running in a group can benefit your progress, ensure that you stay on track and motivate you to keep going.

Social Occasion

Finding a work/life balance is hard enough without having to factor exercise into the equation. After all, 24 hours in a day just don’t stretch far enough! Luckily, running with a friendship group can be a great social occasion and may even reduce the daunting aspect of exercising outdoors by turning it into a meet-up with people you know and are comfortable with.

Here at BookitZone, we are always looking for new and exciting ways that our readers can alter their fitness regime. After all, if you do not challenge yourself then your progress will start to stall. Luckily, running in groups allows you to keep each other accountable for your progress.
