CLUB CODE OF CONDUCT

This club exists to get people into running and keep them running! We do this by hosting sessions, courses, and events, and building a successful community of running around our local area and our clubhouse. Our unrivalled success over the last 12 years is due to our ethos and the amazing atmosphere at our sessions. It takes a lot of work behind the scenes for the club to run smoothly, most of which has been undertaken on a voluntary basis by dedicated and hardworking individuals. Our rules have been written to ensure the club and its online forums continue to be a great atmosphere for ourselves, our staff and volunteers, and for our members and visitors.

In order to join any running sessions from 2022 onwards, it will be required to register as a member via our website beforehand. This is free, but you will be asked to provide some personal data which will protected by our data protection policy below. You can unregister and request for your data to be deleted at any time.

By being part of the club, you agree to reasonable behaviour towards our venues, our coaches, volunteers and staff, 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. We reserve the right to remove members and visitors who are disrespectful or otherwise disruptive, and they will not be welcome at future sessions or at the clubhouse. We also reserve the right to refuse membership of the club to any person for any reason in our absolute discretion.

 

Please do not use the club network to sell or promote your own individual causes. We have a large Facebook audience and we frequently have to remove content that is promotional or not suitable for our audience. To keep the content engaging and relevant to our club we reserve the right to take posts down and we will remove profiles from our Facebook groups if deemed necessary. We also reserve the right to occasionally do a clear out of our huge membership list by removing profiles and data of those who haven’t attended or participated in the club in a long time. This keeps our audience relevant to our club and ensures we are not holding unnecessary personal data. If you have not been with us for a while but are removed from the group and want to be reinstated just email us.
