What is RunTogether?

Run togetherRunTogether has been created by England Athletics, the membership and development body for grassroots athletics and running in England, to provide fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunities for everyone in England.

All our programmes, such as groups and routes, and services, such as Find a Guide and the Mental Health Ambassadors programme share a common theme, they are to help people to run with others. Running with others can provide motivation, guidance and support, as well as making it more fun!

For information on each of the products and services, please visit the individual pages on the website www.runtogether.co.uk

RunTogether Groups are organised, social runs/jogs with other people, led by qualified Run Leaders. All RunTogether Leaders are trained and insured by England Athletics.

RunTogether Groups are suitable for all abilities and categorised to help you decide which run sessions are right for you:

  • Get Me Started

These sessions are for you if you're a beginner runner/ jogger, or if you've not run for a while and want a gentle introduction. There is no minimum standard or level of experience. It's fine to walk a bit, jog a bit, walk a bit more. As the name suggests, it's about helping you to get started.

  • Keep Me Going

These runs are for you if you generally run at least twice per month and feel comfortable running/jogging around 5km without stopping.

  • Challenge Me

These run sessions are for runners who typically run at least once every week and are looking to increase their pace and / or running distance.

Where and When Do RunTogether Group Runs Take Place?

Thousands of RunTogether groups operate all over England. Routes include rural, urban and workplace environments. You can search for your nearest group to home or work using your postcode.

RunTogether groups launched in September 2016 and we plan to continue growing the number, and location, of sessions over the coming months. If you cannot find a suitable
