Run director checklist

  • Before the session
    • Familiarise yourself with club guidelines.  
    • If you have had any symptoms detailed in the guidelines or if you are unable to lead the run for another reason, find a replacement run leader
    • Select a route from the existing risk assessed routes. If you would like to use a new route, this will need to be risk assessed first – just message the run director Messenger group at least 4 days prior to the run with the details
    • Make sure there is a back marker
    • If there is a second run leader signed up you can have up to 24 runners; if there is a third run leader you can have up to 36 runners (the club digital officer amends the number of spaces available)
    • Check the Sign Up list to see who has signed up. If there is a new person who hasn’t run with us before, contact them to find out what pace they think they will be running at (if you don’t have their contact details, message the run directors Messenger group). Make sure someone who runs at a similar pace knows they are coming and is able to run with them
    • Post to Facebook:
      • the route, highlighting where runners should exercise caution
    • Ensure you have a paper or electronic list of everyone who is running so you can check names off at the end.
  • Things you need to take to the run
    • phone
    • knowledge of how to get emergency contact details of members. Any committee member can access the member emergency contact list from the Facebook Dragons committee page. If there isn’t a committee member on the run just message the run directors Messenger group. Emergency contact details for people on a specific run are also available in the Sign Up system via the club digital officer
  • At the session
    • Arrive early
    • If someone arrives who hasn’t booked a place they must sign up, if a place is available, before running. If the run is full they can’t join the run
    • Ensure everyone is familiar with the route and remind them to make sure they let someone know if they leave before you finish
    • Welcome and introduce any new runners
    • Make sure people start the run spread out with the quickest going first.
  • After session
    • Check that all runners have returned
    • Feedback any issues to the COVID-19 Officers
    • Post to Facebook to include inviting feedback from runners.
