FIRST AND FOREMOST ... what we hope is you have a great time hanging out both online, and at the many sessions you can attend, with a group of like minded individuals. Running can be lonely but also immense fun if shared with a good group of people. Having somebody to run with, be pushed along by, share challenges and successes with, is a great motivator.
RUNNING MATES TO RUN AND CHAT WITH.... Obvioulsy we have to be careful in these COVID-19 times and respect the rules so our group runs have to be managed differently. Its so much more fun to run with a group of folks both physically and online. As a Gone Runner you will be part of a great Whatsapp group and of course we have our Facebook Page, Instagram and and our private group on STRAVA with a weekly mileage league table for some friendly competition. We are organizing Virtual Challenges regularly under the current gathering restrictions to keep you motivated and involved.
