I lead lots of groups (work buddies, groups at running club) with not so much as an iota of qualification, except the ability to blow a whistle and shout in an encouraging way. If you're not charging and it's advertised as "informal guidance" not coaching, surely you'd be ok?

Fun to do a course though! Good luck and good job. *blows whistle* :-)G

Thanks Happy, and I reckon you're right on both counts, it's probably fine but a course sounds fun especially if there's a whistle blowing module.

I'm booked on a one day course as of 5 minutes ago. :-)

It's good to know that lots of people lead groups of runners and don't feel the need to be qualified etc though. I reckon that's a good thing. It feels right to me to do the course as I've been thinking about it for ages and this just pushes me into it.

Thanks all. Hearty hugs all round. :-)

Got something to say?
