Athletics and Running @home

Athletics and running play a vitally important role in our society and positively impact the lives of many people. We know that it brings people together, forging lifelong friendships and companionships and in providing a place of belonging and learning for many thousands of participants.

Despite these unprecedented times, our commitment to supporting you will continue to be guided by our values and core beliefs, as well as by the support and ideas from the England Athletics family. While we cannot achieve these goals together in person at this time; the England Athletics family (including RunTogether and funetics) is working hard to support these goals and to be better together virtually and digitally.

Created and implemented in under a week, Athletics and Running @home provides member clubs, affiliated athletes, runners including RunTogether groups, coaches and leaders, officials and families with access to support, resources and activities to help everyone stay active at home.
