Terms & Conditions

RunVerity’s terms and conditions are standard and are based upon 'common sense' and 'normal expectations' from a running coach and running club.

 

Membership

All members must complete the online application form and health questionnaire upon joining RunVerity. The pre-exercise questionnaire is kept on a private computer.  All information will be destroyed 6 months after the last session that a runner attends.

RunVerity members have the option of 'opting' in or 'opting' out of receiving emails from RunVerity by ticking the confirmation box on the application form to join RunVerity you are confirming you are 'opting' in.  You can 'opt' out at any time.

RunVerity’s aim is to provide an opportunity to enjoy a 1 hour run in a safe and supporting environment.  The hour sessions are group coached and consist of a warm up, running drills, a planned 45 min run around Whiteley and Fareham then cool down stretching.  Participants have an opportunity to increase their mileage by adopting a looping back system where the front runners run back to the back runner in a loop which ensures that the group stay together and the group can run as a mixed ability group without leaving anyone behind. By being a member of RunVerity you agree to the looping back system and will fully involve yourself in the full training session.  

As a RunVerity member you have access to all our social events, Race of the Month, opportunites to run either in the UK or abroad as well as the many organised runs at the weekend.  

As a RunVerity member you have access to all the training plans and coaching advice that is available to help you progress.  If the generic training plans do not work for you, you can have support from Head Coach Verity who will discuss this further for you.

RunVerity’s ethos is one of inclusivity and RunVerity will not tolerate any exlusion of any member, Run Leader or Coach. RunVerity has the right to ask members to leave the group if they are disruptive and/or put other members’ enjoyment at risk and this includes any form of exclusion or bullying. Every member of RunVerity should be treated with dignity and respect. RunVerity is committed to providing an environment free from bullying and harassment. We aim to ensure that all members, Coaches and Run Leaders are treated, and treat others, with dignity and respect.

(a)      send you one or more formal warnings;

The Head Coach or Run Leaders do not have access to Strava or the unofficial RV Strava Group.

All events and information will be posted on the Member’s News page on the RunVerity website https://www.runverity.com/group-news

Facebook Groups for RunVerity Members

As RunVerity grows it is hard for me to keep abreast of all of the FB posts and the algorithums of FB sometimes mean that posts get lost and I may miss them. If you would like any feedback on any run or any clarification of any training issue you may have please contact me via messenger or email me runverity@gmail.com

RunVerity Member’s Group

This group is for member’s to keep abreast with all the RunVerity information as well as an opportunity to post photos of runs/races/inspirational quotes.

RunVerity Events Group

This group is for member’s to keep abreast with all the upcoming events that maybe of interest to members. This includes, but is not exhaustive, graduation runs, monthly races and social events.

RunVerity Weekend Runs Group

This group is for member’s to keep abreast with what’s going on at the weekend should you wish to have company on your weekend run. Every month we have a RunVerity weekend run where all members are invited. We have a finish time at a location so that members can work out how many miles they need to do and at what pace. This ensures that we finish at the same time but may not start at the same time. All RunVerity members are welcome regardless of what membership package that you are on.

Logo on the left chest and “LET’S RUN TOGETHER” on the back.
