After meeting and taking a register, participants decide which distance they would like to run from the three options given. After a warm-up session, beginners are taken out on a 1-to-1 basis with full support and encouragement, whilst the more advanced runners go out at their own pace on their chosen distance (3 or 4 miles). Every group has a 'back-marker' to ensure that no-one is left at the end of the pack alone, and there is lots of support and companionship.
