  • Can I pay for a course on the day? To enable us to plan classes more effectively, all courses have to be booked in advance.

  • Can I cancel or move my class? All course booking are final and no refunds will be given. On some occasions, a class day can be swapped if there is availability.
  • What do I wear to a class? As all classes take place on Wimbledon Common, layers including rainwear are advisable and appropriate footwear must be worn. Essential medication and/or inhalers need to be taken with you.
  • Do I need to prepare for my first class? If you are a complete beginner, you’ll need to be able to walk briskly for 20 minutes continuously prior to starting the course. And if an improver runner, you’ll need to be running at least twice a week for a minimum of 30  minutes continuously, as this will aid your enjoyment and progress.
  • What happens if a class is cancelled? A class will only be cancelled if weather conditions are severe or running paths are dangerous.  A catch-up class will be arranged or a refund given and all attendees will be notified.
