How fit do I need to be, to join the 'Up A Gear' group?
Provided you can run 5km in under 35mins you should be fine. There will be dads at various levels of fitness running within the group, so we'll team up appropriately to make sure nobody runs alone and everybody gets appropriately challenged at their level of fitness
What sort of kit do I need?
- Comfortable and appropriate running clothing (e.g. a tracksuit) including a pair of training shoes
- Water in a suitable container
- Spare clothing, including warm and weather appropriate outer layers for use after the session
- As we will be running towards the end of the day, in potentially low light conditions we recommend a high visibility layer and a small personal torch
Is there an age limit?
Hell no. Provided you’re over the age of 12 (most dads are) then you are welcome to join the pack. There is no upper age limit – if you happen to be a grandad or even a great-grandad, more power to you.
I have an injury / medical condition, can I join?
The Run Daddy Run team aren’t medically trained, so we can’t advise on an individual basis. You must decide if you are fit to run – if you’re not sure, please check with your doctor.
Can I just turn up on the day?
No – these sessions take a lot of planning and we need to know who is coming, well in advance. We hate turning people away, so please be sure to sign up before arriving.
If you want to join the course part way through, get in touch and we can talk about it.
What if I need to cancel my membership?
You can cancel at any time - just contact us with your request and we'll take care of it
