Synthesis of the case study

In March 2017, the project idea was created following a consultation, and it was clear that there was a desire from members of the local community to get more physically active in Slough’s parks and green spaces. A free running programme which caters for beginners and intermediates was conceived as an effective way of doing this. It was agreed that running was something that can be done at relatively low costs i.e. equipment requirements is cheaper than other sessions and can be delivered in an inclusive manner for all abilities, ages and experiences. In April 2017, volunteer Run Leaders were recruited through the partnership with Upton Court Park Run and trained in completing the leadership in running fitness course. In May 2017 the running groups began and to date there has been over 90 unique participants.
