Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be the slowest in the group and will I be left behind?
At Run Eat Sleep we have a strict Nobody Gets Left Behind Policy
and our coaches are experts at helping people of all abilities.
You’ll never be made to feel you are slow or holding anybody
back and you’ll only be encouraged to run to your fitness level.
Will people look at me?
In your first session you’ll be introduced to our friendly group
and will be supported by the rest of the members and your coach.
Everyone was once a new starter and everyone will be helpful
and make you feel welcome.
Will I be the oldest, youngest in the group?
Our members’ ages range from 20 to 60 years of age
– and everyone is treated in the same way – with
encouragement and friendliness.
Do I have to be a runner to join?
Our definition of a runner is somebody that
already runs or wants to start running.
Whether you’re a beginner, improver or
an intermediate runner = we’d love to have
you come and progress your running with us.
I get out of breathe really easily, will I be able to do it?
Being out of breathe is a good thing. It’s a sign that
you’re pushing your body and getting a good workout –
which is what you need to improve. We encourage you
to get a little out of breathe and take rests if you need them.
Even the best runners take rests in their training sessions
when they’re out of breathe.
What happens if I can’t make all of the sessions?
We understand that things come up where you may not be
able to make a session. We expect you to give your coach
notice before the training session and you will be able to
receive the training session, which you can do in your own
time at home. We encourage you to do this to make sure
you are progressing each week.
Do I have to enter running events?
We encourage you to take part in running events as they are
fun to take part in and are great for keeping things exciting
and a goal to focus on, but you won’t be forced into anything
you don’t want to do.
What will I need to wear?
All you need is a pair of running trainers and some suitable
clothing for running in. We train outdoors so it’s important
to keep your clothing appropriate for a wide range of weather conditions.
What do you do in the sessions and how far do you run?
We use a wide variety of training methods that have been proven
to improve runners of all abilities. These include group runs,
hill running, track running, trail running, interval training.
You’ll run, jog or walk anywhere from 1 mile – 4 miles in a single
