London City Runners is a completely free to join and participate in. However please note it is a private club, not a public service. It is hosted by folks who put a lot of their own time and energy into keeping it going. In legal terms the club is what is called an unincorporated association, meaning we have the right to set some basic terms and conditions to those who wish to take advantage of all the work we do. These are as follows:
London City Runners (“us” “we” or “our”)
Participant (visitors, users and participants)
Code of conduct
By being part of the club, you agree to reasonable behaviour towards our venues, our volunteers, and other members of the club. Any behaviour deemed inappropriate, offensive, or which undermines the club’s volunteers or activities will put your participation in the club at risk. This conduct covers both online and offline behaviour. As an unincorporated association we reserve the right to remove members who are disrespectful or otherwise disruptive and they will not be welcome at future sessions. We also reserve the right to refuse membership of the club to any person for any reason in our absolute discretion.
Please also do not use the club network to sell or promote your own individual causes. We have a large Facebook audience and to keep the content engaging and relevant to our club we reserve the right to take posts down and block members from social media if necessary. We also reserve the right to occasionally do a clear out of our huge membership list by removing members who haven’t attended or participated in the club in a long time. This keeps our audience relevant to our club. If you have not been with us for a while but are removed from the group and want to be reinstated please email us.
This club exists to get people into running and keep them running! Our unrivaled success over the last 8 years is due to our ethos and the amazing atmosphere at our sessions. Please respect that it takes a lot of work behind the scenes and for it to continue we need to set some rules so it continues to be a great atmosphere for ourselves, our volunteers, and for you our members.
Photographs may be taken by London City Runners for publicity reasons at our sessions and the resulting images may be published on our social media, website, or made the subject or intellectual rights by us. By running with us you agree you may appear in these photographs and agree to this use. Let us know in advance if you do not wish to be photographed.
We recommend runners don’t use personal music devices while running with us. This is so you are aware of your surroundings and can hear instructions. Please also show consideration of other road and pavement users during your runs.
Age & liability
The minimum age to run with us is 18.
By taking part in a run with City Runners you do so at your own risk and the club is not liable for any injury, loss, death or damage resulting from you taking part.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are medically fit to run. You must acknowledge that any form of running can be hazardous and strenuous, and you shouldn’t take part unless capable of completing the full distance. Please take medical advice before booking if necessary and consider whether you need medical insurance to run. We reserve the right to stop you taking part if deemed unfit before running with us. If medical treatment is necessary during the run this should be sought from UK emergency services.
You are ultimately responsible for any belongings you leave in our venue during your run. We will endeavour to keep an eye on these belongings but please do not leave anything valuable and understand that we are not liable for any losses.
