Welcome to our running group
About our group
Oh, what a rollercoaster we are on.
As things currently stand, we are allowed to coach one-to-one, but I'm reluctant to do it because things are looking so grim for the NHS at the and I don't want to risk our coaching team being super-spreaders, plus I don't want to put anyone in the position of having to make non-essential trips, and finally there are rumours of even stricter lockdowns to come, and I'm not sure even one-to-ones will be an option soon.
For the foreseeable future we are only offering virtual coaching – a training plan, a weekly chat over video-call or phone, and support via whatsapp/email/text/messenger in between. Please get in touch for more information.
Once we are able to restart you can rest assured that our procedures have been risk assessed and locations and routes have been chosen to minimise interaction between groups and with members of the public. Our team of coaches and run leaders will be doing extra things to keep you safe, but we will also be relying on you to act sensibly.
We ask that you:
- Always book in advance as numbers are strictly limited;
- Wash your hands before coming or use hand gel;
- If you need to cough or sneeze do so into a tissue or your elbow, bin the tissue and wash/gel your hands;
- Run in a way that is considerate toward other people (for example being prepared to step to the side or stop);
- Listen to your coach/run leader and do what they ask you;
- Do not attend a session if you have any of the symptoms of coronavirus: new continuous cough –high temperature – loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
You can see the available dates and times on the Our Runs page.
Based in the beautiful city of Bath we are a growing community of runners who range from beginners to marathon veterans, and everything in between! Hannah the Runner began in 2016 when I gained my UK Athletics CiRF qualification and began offering running coaching for groups and individuals.
I believe that running is for everyone. No matter your gender, age, fitness level or ambitions I want to help you achieve your running goals.
I work with a fantastic team of Run Leaders to offer daytime, evening and weekend courses and groups for beginners, improvers and returning runners, and half-marathon/race training for athletes working towards a specific goal (particularly the Bath Half Marathon).
