Exciting Development Opportunities for Run Leaders & Coaches

The Run Leader Development Series is back by popular demand for 2019/2020 and is bigger and better than ever!

Over 800 leaders attended last year’s Run Leader Development Series and England Athletics has expanded the 2019/2020 series to 7 locations across the country. Our most convenient locations are Bristol and Birmingham.
