Run Leader Development Days

The Run Leader Development Days series of informative and engaging workshops are aimed at leaders and coaches from affiliated clubs. They are designed to bring leaders and coaches together in an environment where they can network and learn from each other by sharing skills and challenges, plus expand their knowledge of managing and growing groups, and enhance their understanding of technical skills in running.

BOOKING NOW – The Run Leader Development Series is back by popular demand for 2020 and is bigger and better than ever! Scroll down for online booking links.

Over 800 leaders attended last year’s Run Leader Development Series and we have now expanded the series to seven locations across the country:  Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, London and Manchester.
