Junior members (under 18 years) 

It’s wonderful to see families running together and we encourage you to get your children involved. We want our children to see that running is good for your physical, mental and social health. 

Junior members (under 18 years) are welcome at DCR, however we ask that the following conditions are met:

·       Children under 11 years at all times must be no further than arms distance from their parent or adult guardian

·       Children aged from 11 to 17 years are able to run without a parent or adult guardian however the parent/adult guardian must provide their contact details on the sign in form at all authorised club events/runs/sessions.  The parent/guardian must be present to pick up the child at the conclusion of the event/run/session.

·       No scooters or bikes are allowed on any official club event/run/session.

·       Any dog accompanying you or your child must be kept on a short lead at all times.

All of our Volunteer Session Leaders have their Working with Children Check, as per the Working with Children Act 2005 however the responsibility of the child remains with the parent/adult guardian. This means that children are welcome at all DCR sessions but children under 11 years must be actively supervised at all times. Children aged 11 to 17 years must have a parent/guardian available to be contacted immediately and/or have an adult/adult guardian responsible for them at all DCR authorised events/runs/sessions.
