Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Do we all run together?

Q. How many people will be in each group?

A. There'll be roughly 12 people per group with each group being lead by an England Athletics qualified run leader with the additional support of other competent, experienced runners within each group.

Q. If I feel the group I'm running with is too fast / too slow will I be able to swap groups?

A. Yes of course, just speak to your run leader who will happily advise which group to try the following week. We want you to find a group you feel comfortable and happy with so you enjoy the course.

Week 2 - 7 - Start at 6:30pm prompt for the warm up, we will be out on the roads each week initially progressing to some off road and slightly hillier routes, nothing too silly! There will be no changing facilities available for these weeks. Finish around 8pm
