Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be too slow?

Absolutely not! Our run groups are structured to cater to all speeds and capabilities. We have a number of runs going out at each club meet so there will always be a run for you.

With different running capabilities, how do you stay together?

To allow people to run at their own pace and still stay together we operate a loopback system. In brief, if faster runners choose to run ahead, at certain points, as defined by the Run Leader, they will loop back to the main group. We always regroup and run back to the clubhouse together.

Do I have to run in races if I join?

No, at Dragons there is absolutely no obligation to run in races and events. It’s entirely up to you.

Are there any fitness requirements to join?

Absolutely none whatsoever. We welcome all abilities and all fitness levels. Our Run Leaders and fellow members will ensure you will have a positive experience, no matter where you are in your fitness journey
