For many of us, running can provide a much-needed escape in these times of uncertainty. A moment of mental silence amongst the noise. A chance to move, disconnect and escape our worries. The beauty of running is that it gives so much back. Read more about the benefits of running on your mental health and find out why Team Digme run here.
We're so excited to be able to share our love of running with the launch of the Digme Virtual Run Club. This blog explains a bit more about what the Run Club is and how you can join in...
A 45 minute social audio run every Saturday morning at 9am.
Whether you're outdoors or lucky enough to have your own treadmill, you'll just need some headphones and a mobile phone (& data). All abilities are welcome - it's a social 45-minute run, and definitely not a race. Think of it as a podcast with a playlist – the perfect companion to make your run fly by!
We hope this live run will help bring people together into an online community at a time when physically meeting others has taken a step backwards.
Who can join?
The 45 minute run will be appropriate for all levels of runners. Whether you are a new to running or a seasoned runner there will be something for everyone.
For those new to running, there is no pressure to run consistently for the 45 minutes - you can split your run up in to walk/jog segments to suit your abilities. If you're unsure what this is or how you should split your session up then please message us on Facebook or Instagram. You can join our community Run Club Facebook page here.

What is Fit To 5K?
As well as our community Virtual Run Club, we're excited to launch our FIT TO 5K programme. Perfect for those new to running, returning to fitness or those looking to learn the strength and conditioning tools needed to make the distance.
Created by our Head of HIIT and Running, Ben Davie, the programme consists of 3 sessions for 8 weeks and has been designed to give you the strength and base conditioning needed to run more efficiently.
Starting on Monday 22 June, the programme is £25. Book your place here.
