England Athletics & Run England
Run England is the official England Athletics recreational running project which aims to get the whole nation running. Regardless of your age, fitness level, aspiration, background, or location you can be a part of Run England and benefit from being a part of England's running community. So whatever you want to get from your running Run England is here to encourage and support you. (And to make sure we all have some fun with our running)!
All local registered running groups are led by qualified insured leaders who have attended the Leadership in Running Fitness Course.
Benefits to registering your group include funding towards the Leadership in Running Fitness Course, receiving a Leaders Starter kit, access to free Run leader Workshops (in association with APC) and promotion of your group to potential new runners. Should your group need it bespoke support from England Athletics can be offered on request.
The role of Run England includes:
