Would you like to become a Run Leader?

We are looking for Run Leaders who can inspire others to take their first steps into running. If you are supportive, patient, passionate, excited by helping others to achieve their goal and keen to share your love of running we would love to hear from you.

To become a Run Leader you need to attend a one day LiRF (Leadership in Running Fitness) course, which on completion, provides you with a coaching licence (including insurance) to lead run sessions. The course specifically focuses on how to lead a group of beginners or recreational runners.

Run Surrey, in partnership with Run England, have just launched a bursary to provide a 50% refund for the cost of the course (Course cost £160 - with £80 refund *conditions apply).

Find out more and apply for the bursary.

For more information about the LiRF course visit Run England.

What is a 3-2-1 route?
