Hear from our Run Leaders

What is a Run Leader:

England Athletics offer a 'Leadership in Running Fitness' qualification designed to prepare you to provide a safe and enjoyable running experience for young people aged 12+ and adults of any ability. The course covers risk assessment, warm-ups, cool downs, and how to lead fun running sessions for a mixed ability group of runners.

We have supported many run leaders to lead their own run groups, including beginner C25K courses (click here for examples!). Our run leaders really do make a difference in supporting local people to get active and achieve their goals.

Hear from some of our run leaders in Hinckley and Bosworth below, including why they decided to become a run leader and active advice!
