RunVerity new News for the Autumn

RunVerity is expanding and I want to keep you all up to date with all that is going on. So bear with me and please make note of where all information will be held in the future.

We now have 4 Run Leaders, Deliah Downie, Emily Giles, Helen Fitzgerald and Charlie Rourke. All of the RV Run Leaders have completed the England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness course and have been trained by myself to become a RV Run Leader.

RunVerity is expanding the RV Beginner’s Course to Fareham, there will be 2 sessions; a 9.30am and a 7pm session. These will be held behind Fareham Leisure Centre and will meet at Leigh Road car park.

Emily Giles and Charlie Rourke will be taking the morning session and myself and Emily will be taking the evening session. This means that Helen Fitzgerald will be leading the Monday evening session in Whiteley from the middle of September. Don’t be surprised if another RV run leader takes a session as we now have plenty of people to cover holidays.

There will no longer be a newsletter, all the current news and events will be posted in the following areas

The member’s area on the website

RV weekend runs will be updated in the RV weekend runs group

RV Events will be updated in the RV Events group

  • please note that you have to “like” comments and posts to keep getting notifications from all the RV Groups. I know people are missing posts due to FB algorithms and I know there is a lot of information being bombarded via FB but if in doubt check the website as I am trying to divert traffic back to the website.

The password for the member’s area will be emailed to you via mail chimp from This is changed every few months due to fluctuations in membership.

There are a number of training plans in the member’s area on the website, the beginner plans are designed for people who have never run that particular distance before and the intermediate and advanced plans are mainly designed for people who are comfortable running that distance before. If in doubt just ask.

All the articles that I have written will be collated in an e-book that should be available in the member’s area on the website and this should be ready by the 23rd August.

Friday 24th August the morning session will be on from 9am-10am and then I will then be on holiday until the 28th August, I am leaving my phone at home :). So no sessions on Bank Holiday Monday, normal sessions will resume at 6.30pm on Tuesday 28th August.

RV 4th Birthday celebration will be at Fareham parkrun on the 1st September at 9am. There will definately be cake after this, please, please come and support, lets see how many RVs we can get there and if you haven’t got RunVerity down as your club then could you add us as it makes the stats look fab.

There are a few RV members who are running the Arundel 10k, if you fancy meeting up, please post in the events group as I know a few of you are running this for the first time.

There are lots of RV members who are running varying distances at the New Forest on September 9th. I am up north running the GNR so I will need a “volunteer” to co-ordinate a meeting point and warm up if anyone fancies doing this on my behalf. Just pm me.
