We are starting a Saturday morning gently paced social running group from Saturday 8th August 10:30AM ideal for those who have taken part in our "Couch to 5K" programme for instance, although all members are welcome.
Where will we meet?
We will meet at at a park bench in front of Reigate Priory School by the Sunken Garden.
Why should I join in?
The intention is for social (but socially distanced) running and occasional walking as required with the emphasis on a fun low-key way to get fitter.
We will finish off with an optional socially distanced coffee obtained from the café where the group may need to split depending on group numbers and current government guidance.
What routes will we take?
We will be finding routes of about three or four miles that will take approximately 40 minutes up to 1 hour.
This could include routes heading West along paths towards Reigate Heath, or on roads around the environs of Reigate. Road running shoes will be fine. We will attempt to avoid mud!
Here are some routes...
What about COVID-19?
To participate in each session each person will need to sign a 7 question pre-activity questionnaire in keeping with other RPAC groups.
If participants are particularly concerned about the social distancing or have an underlying condition then they are encouraged to make this known to the leader.
All participants must remain socially distanced at all times, meaning at least 2 metres apart and we will therefore be setting off in a staggered fashion.
The group leader will carry PPE and will "lead" from the rear of the group.
Participants are expected to stay within visible range of the participant behind them.
Participants will be asked to run back to the leader on reaching various points within the route in order to keep the group together.
How much does it cost?
Nothing of course. This is all part of your club membership.
How can I enrol?
Should you wish to be included within this group please contact Paul Walters by emailing for inclusion in the list of attendees.
There will strictly be a limit of 12 participants within the group on any occasion.
Once enrolled how can we keep in touch?
There is a WhatsApp group called "RPAC Saturday Group" that you will be encouraged to join to stay in touch with the group and to hear the route information for the week.
