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, RunTogther 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.

For more information about joining one of Plymouth’s local running club’s email sportsdev@plymouth.gov.uk or call 01752 307008.

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.

Funding for this course is available through our sport and recreational grant aid.
