Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join?

Simple – you just show up. Decide which day(s) and location(s) suit you best and go along at the specified time. There will be someone there who will give a run brief before we set off. Check the Routes page for details of times and location

How much does it cost?

Nothing. Rebel Runners is a free running group. We are not affiliated and we have no fees – annual, monthly or weekly. Everyone who helps out does so on a voluntary basis.

How often do I need to attend?

You can come as often or as little as you like. We don’t keep a record of attendance so it’s completely up to you. Even if you haven’t been for months, you’re always welcome.

How good/fast do I need to be?

We try our best to cater to all levels of running, from beginner run/walk pace up to however quick you want to be.

How far do you run?

Most of our runs are a minimum of 3 miles (5k) and can be extended to 5 or 6 miles (10k), depending on the route. We occasionally run on Sunday mornings. These are longer routes, usually between 5 and 10 miles.

What if it’s bad weather?

No such thing as bad weather – only inappropriate clothing! Seriously though, if the ground is icy or if there are dangerous stormy conditions then we usually call off the run for that day but pretty much any other weather, you’ll find at least a few of us out running. It’s always best to check Facebook for the latest updates.
