Saturday's Session

This Week's Session

  • A Drop In Session pass or a valid Extra Mile Runners Membership is needed for this session

  • Please BOOK IN before you arrive at the session (see below on how to do this)

  • When you arrive, please check-in with the coach taking the session roll call

    Alert Level 2 Session Rules:

    As we are under Alert Level 2, there are some rules that we all need to follow at the Extra Mile Runners sessions so we can adhere to the Alert Level 2 criteria to keep us safe:

  • If you feel unwell or if anyone in your household is unwell please stay at home and away from the group.

  • No keybags. We ask that you look after your own keys so we can avoid any unnecessary surface contact with others.

  • Check in with the coach taking roll call: It's vital that we know exactly who is at the sessions in case contact tracing is required. Please ensure you check in with the coach at every single session and keep track of your movements also. 

  • At the sessions, we all need to do our best to keep to not get too close to each other and take simple, common-sense steps with good hygiene; cover coughs and sneezes with tissues, elbows or clothing and avoid any touching contact with others.

  • At the start and end of each session, keep your distance safe between each other and avoid hanging around after the session has ended.
