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. All we ask is that you are medically fit* to run
*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.
It’s been a while – what if I can’t keep up?
Our 0-5km courses all begin on a circuit, so there is no need to ‘keep up’ and no risk of being left at the back.
We welcome dads of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels - and we run as a pack and never leave a man behind.
What if I can’t make all 8 sessions?
No problem! The increments in time/distance between each session are relatively small, so even if you miss a week, you should still be able to keep up in the next session . Also, there are two lots of optional homework each week, so you always have the option of keeping up in your own time, if you miss a group session.
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.
If I’m unable to complete the course, can I get a refund for the weeks I don’t attend?
Once a course has started we will not be able to offer refunds for any unattended weeks
