On the new payment system can I do as many runs as I like?
If you sign up to the 1 run per week, then you can choose the run that you would like to join. If you would like to add additional runs on, you can do so for £6 per run. If you join the unlimited plan you can turn up to as many run sessions as you like. For example, you could join us on a Monday night for the Improvers course, wake up to a mixed ability run on Wednesday morning, run with us from Bletchingley on a Friday and kick start your weekend with a run with us on a Saturday.
Will I still have to pay membership to RLJ?
No, there will be no more membership under the new payment system. This will save you £19.99 a year.
Do I need to sign up to a contract?
No, there will be no contract. You are free to cancel your standing order at any point.
Are all courses included?
We want to make the courses as accessible to you as possible. All courses are included except for those run by an external coach for example Run and Strength and the longer distance courses.
Do I still need to register for courses?
Yes, we still ask that you register for courses. The courses are usually based on achieving a goal. They build a sense of camaraderie over the weeks as the challenge of the course progresses. We therefore ask that if you want to join, you must let us know at the beginning of the course and not enter half way through it.
How many runs a week would I need to do to make it worthwhile?
We have developed the unlimited plan to try and make it more accessible for our runners to run more. If you can run 5 times a month you will break even on the plan. So, that’s only 1 run a week and 1 other run. Our aim would be to get you out running every day of the week!
Can I use my old tokens?
Yes, you can use your old tokens and then move on to the new payment system. Old tokens will be honoured for 6 months from the date of purchase.
What if I don’t want to use the new system?
We understand that some of you like the pay-as-you-go system. If you would like to stay on tokens, you can purchase tokens at £6 per run and the same terms and conditions will apply.
Why are you changing to a new system?
We want to be able to provide the best service to our runners, from the coaches that we provide to the courses that we offer and to do this we need to move with the times. We really hope that this new system opens up new running opportunities to you and allows more of you to run more often.
