Lead a jogging/running group in your area

Lead a jogging/running group in your area

RUN BIRMINGHAM, in partnership with Solihull Active, are on the lookout for Volunteer Run Leaders/Activators.

We particularly need leaders for the following areas Smiths Wood, Kingshurst and Fordbridge, & Chelmsley Wood.

If you live or work in one of those areas we’d like to hear from you. Likewise if you are passionate about getting people more active through walking/jogging/running, and you don’t need to be able to run a half marathon, please do get in touch!

Next training day SUN 21 OCT 9-5pm North Solihull Sports Centre. Access this FREE training and support to help start a group, all we ask in return is you to deliver/lead/support free and inclusive sessions supporting beginner runners/joggers in the area.

Join our growing movement to get the city and surrounding areas active.

Mail sadiewalker@solihull.gov.uk for more info or to apply. Spaces are limited so get a jog on!
