Chorlton Runners' Club Rules

Please follow our black and golden rules for safe and enjoyable running.

  1. Respect your run leaders and follow their instructions at all times – they are all volunteers (giving up their free time and their own run). The club runs couldn’t go ahead without them. They will have planned routes/training especially for you so give them a big thumbs up.
  2. Respect and acknowledge other road and footpath users. There might be a lot of us, but we don’t own the place – be aware of what’s around you, run single file if you have to, slow down if you have to, and please give a smile and a thank you to anyone who stops or moves out of the way for us.
  3. Be aware of the other runners in your group. Encourage and support each other and stop to assist or slow down if you need to.
  4. Be responsible for your own safety, and warn others if you think they may be at risk.
  5. If it’s dark, wear something bright – hi vis or reflective. You can’t be seen as well as you think you can if you’re just in normal gear, and there’s no safety in numbers alone.
  6. Be nice to your fellow club members whether you are running, Facebooking or socialising. Respect each others’ differences and abilities.
  7. Be supportive of other clubs and their achievements – many are achieving great things and have runners just like you.
  8. Play by race rules – whether it’s a UKA, FRA or an independent race, you must abide by their rules. If you break the rules you will bring disrepute on yourself and the club; it could even lead to a ban. DON’T SWAP RACE NUMBERS without the organiser’s permission.
  9. If anyone, or anything has concerned you….don’t keep it to yourself. Refer to the Club Constitution and speak to a member of the Committee or a run leader.
  10. Make life simple for your Committee – pay your dues on time, fill in any surveys, give us feedback, volunteer, and above all…Have Fun!
