Who should go on this course?

If you have an interest in running for fitness and you’d like to lead a group, then this is the course for you. 

How many days will it take?

One day, with no assessment.

What will I learn? 

The course will focus on the safe organisation of running activity and how to lead a group of inexperienced runners. Topics covered include:

  • The barriers that stop people from taking up running.
  • What you could do as a leader to make a difference for them.
  • How to deliver a safe and fun warm up and a cool down.
  • The different types of running activity that can make running varied and enjoyable.
  • How to deliver sessions that are safe and fun. 

What will I be able to do? 

The course is designed to prepare you as a Leader to provide a safe and enjoyable running experience for people over 12 years of age of any level of ability, age, size and shape.

As a Leader you may set up your own group and register with the Run England network. Your qualification as a Leader in Running Fitness will provide you with insurance to lead a group within the limits of the course content.
