Fitmums to Launch in Harrogate


The aim of a Fitmums & Friends running group is to offer a complete range of distances at EVERY session. Therefore a 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 mile run is offered to enable people of all abilities to attend. All the distances are led by a trained run leader ensuring appropriate warm up takes place and post run stretching. Groups meet weekly but can expand to offer more sessions a week and to offer more activities such as buggy sessions and fitness walks over time if wanted.

All Fitmums & Friends groups are led by volunteers and supported by a central Fitmums & Friends team who guide the development & maintenance of the ever increasing Fitmums organisation. It is this team that will be supporting the set-up of the new Harrogate group ensuring the strong principles of support and systems are continued in this new club.

To get Harrogate Fitmums & Friends off the ground we need a Co-ordinator in place (this could be two people sharing the role together) plus at least 5 other willing volunteers, prepared to become volunteer run leaders. This requires attending a 1-day course facilitated by England Athletics. The costs of the course will be subsidised by Fitmums & friends which means individuals need only pay £40 (course cost £140). A number of potential run leaders have already been identified to support a new group in Harrogate but more are welcome and needed.

The new Harrogate Fitmums & Friends will become part of a very supportive network – both for members and the organising team of run leaders and the Co-ordinator/s. A Harrogate Fitmums facebook and website page will support the work of the group
