Normal runs are on Wednesday evenings meeting at 18:30 outside the Lancing Impulse Lesure Centre.




The core principles of returning to group sessions
  • A Covid secure environment has been created, allowing groups of 6. This means 1 Run Leader and 5 additional runners. This may be able to rise in the future dependent on Government and EA Guidelines.
  • A qualified Run Leader must be present on all group runs.
  • Social distancing (2m minimum) must always be adhered to, by all members.
  • This is a trial and the club may change the guidance or pause group runs at any time.
Booking to attend on a Wednesday night
Unfortunately, due to the restrictions on numbers and leaders available we may not be able to cater for everyone who wants to run each week. We have looked into this and tried to come up with a fair way for all members:


  • We will be using Eventbrite for members to book into groups on Wednesday nights. Eventbrite is an established and popular event online booking system; it is free and easy to use via the website or the app.
  • Each week group runs will be published to members via email as events. All events will be found at http://lancingeagles.eventbrite.com.
  • Event booking will open every Wednesday evening for the following Wednesday. 
  • Only 5 people plus 1 Run Leader may register to attend for each run group during the trial period. We expect to be able to run 3 or 4 groups each week depending on Run Leader availability. 
  • Events will be on a first come first served basis.
  • Members must book into the event to attend. If a member turns up to run who hasn’t booked, they will not be allowed to take part in the session.
  • All members will have to confirm they have no COVID-19 symptoms or had a positive test in the last 14 days. They will also have to confirm that they comply with the COVID-19 guidance stipulated below.
  • If a member books into an event but does not turn up on two occasions they will not be able to book further sessions until a discussion with a club official.
  • All sessions will be held at the same date and time must enforce Covid / social distancing guidelines.
  • Runs will commence at the Lancing Manor (meet outside on the grass and take different routes for each group).
  • We hope members will be fair and recognise that they may not be able to run every week and therefore they will let others book before them. If anyone has trouble booking please do let us know.
