Welcome to our Athletics Community
Next run: Thursday 26 May 2022
About our group
Vale of York is an Athletics group which provide a variety of weekly community runs which cater for all abilities.
All our community runs are free to supporting members of VOYAC and are led by a U.K. athletics qualified coach or run leader.
Potential new members can sign up straight away via the link below.
Details are listed on our ‘runs’ page, but there’s usually something going on every Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday or Sunday mornings.
Sessions are currently limited to a ratio of 12 runners per available Run Leader, therefore booking is essential. Some sessions may be cancelled if take up is low.
All our sessions are conducted in a fun, sociable setting and are suitable for anyone aged 14 upwards. Unfortunately, at the moment we cannot cater for juniors under the age of 14. We do however have a separate junior Athletics section, details can be found on our website: https://www.valeofyork.com
Sessions normally last for around 60 minutes. Long runs can be anything upwards of 60 minutes. Some sessions include 1 or 2 rest breaks. Please check the run details before booking.
- Booking is mandatory to assist NHS Track and Trace if required
- Your RunTogether medical questionnaire must be completed prior to attending any sessions
- If you feel unwell, do not attend and seek medical advice if required
- Wear comfortable clothing and suitable footwear
- Bring water and any food that you require; we cannot share food and water
- Swallow don't spit and cough in a hygienic manner
- Follow local COVID-19 rules and guidelines
We may take photos during the session that are shared on social media. Please let the run leader know prior to the commencement of the session if you do not wish to be in the photo.
