Leadership in Running Fitness course delivered by England Athletics

The Leadership in Running Fitness course delivered by England Athletics addresses barriers to participation in running finding ways of appealing to those not traditionally attracted to running clubs. On the course you will receive your DBS form and will then be able to apply for a DBS check with UK Athletics. Once you've completed the course and received DBS clearance from UK Athletics you will be able to run your group as an Official Run England Group.

Cost is around £150 but funding may be available to support you.
