There are lockers to store your belongings as well as changing and shower facilities. There’s also an in-house coffee shop where you can pick up your breakfast / lunch before heading home or to the office.

Members arrive 5-10 minutes before the start for a pre-run brief. The runs will always be accompanied by Running Works team members and a tail runner to make sure that everyone is looked after.
