Welcome to Rebel Runners ~ Medway!

Have you taken up running or got into it a bit more during the current crisis?

Would you like to carry on when the crisis is over and get support from a friendly running club and maybe make new friends?

Rebel Runners (Medway) would love to help with your running journey.

Please click the Newsletter link below to find out some of what we have got up to during the lockdown, and some of the programmes we’ve introduced since to keep up your motivation.

We also have produced a programme for anyone hoping to improve their fitness and be able to run to 5K during the crisis – see Couch to 5K document below. We are expecting to run a coach led, member supported, physical Couch to 5K later in 2021 as soon as Covid restrictions allow. Please watch this space for more details!

We normally offer two free ‘trial runs’ with us before you join. During the current crisis we are offering 2 months free access to our Facebook sites so that you can see what we are all about instead.
To find out more please contact membership-rebelrunners@outlook.com

Happy Running!

Couch to 5K

We have been organising team runs during the current crisis when it has been considered safe by Government guidelines & England Athletics.  These have been strictly by advanced booking so that social distance requirements could be met to keep all of our runners, as well as members of the public safe. We have created a comprehensive risk assessment for socially distanced team runs. However, these were paused when the area went into Tier 4 and have been suspended with the current full lockdown. We are still encouraging members to run individually, as per the new regulations, and are creating virtual runs to help motivate them.
