Running groups

Jogging or running regularly is a great way of improving your overall physical health. If you are a complete beginner, Public Health England's Couch to 5k smartphone app is a great place to start and will get you confidently running 5k in just nine weeks.

If you are looking to run in a group, RunTogether is a social running programme designed to provide fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunities for everyone locally. You'll need to become a RunTogether member (which is free) and complete a simple consent/registration form before taking part.

Become a running leader

You don't need experience in running to become a running leader, just a passion for helping others succeed. If you want to become a running leader you'll need to complete the online Leadership in Running Fitness course. For more information visit the England Athletics website.
