Run Commuting

Running to or from work is growing more and more popular. In fact, the number of run commuters has tripled in the last two years. Here at the University we are continuing to build a community of run commuters.

To help you better understand run commuting, a set of FAQs has been created, which you can download from the box to the right. There is also a document to the right which lists shower and changing facilities available across the University.

Each month UMRun host a monthly run to work event, where those who have run to work will get the chance to meet, discuss and share experiences and ideas over a free breakfast.

These events take place on the final Thursday of each month, you can find more information on @WeRun_UoM on Twitter and by following Environmental Sustainability updates via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This initiative is focused on staff and post-grads. For undergrads the Run Wild group offers free weekly runs

The University has groups running for health and fitness, for more information please see this page.
