Run Wales

Do you have a passion for running? Want to encourage more of your friends, family members or colleagues to run with you? Interested in starting your own social running group?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then becoming a qualified leader in running fitness (LiRF) is perfect for you. As a LiRF you will be insured and have the extra skills needed to lead fun and focused running based fitness sessions at your leisure. Find out more about what's involved in the courses from Welsh Athletics.

The course will enable you (as a leader) to deliver fun and safe sessions to multi-ability groups and provide advice and support to new runners, as well as to develop pathways for those who want to progress. The course focuses on understanding and overcoming barriers to participation in running and how to increase participation by those not traditionally attracted to a running club.

You will also be able to register your running group with Run Wales here.
