The running group model promoted through Run England is being used in a number of targeted projects such as Active Women and Active Universities and is being discussed with others such as us girls, and there is the potential to extend this further. There are some specific examples that the Run England activators are working on currently which are in the early stages of development.These include:In Sheffield, the activator is working closely with Black Card and Sporting Equals to develop Run England promotional materials to cater for the somalian community in Sheffield. In addition, they are working on proposals to develop specific groups to help engage with the BME communities within Sheffield.Within London, there is a recognition that each borough has diverse communities. The North East London activator is working specifically within the borough of Tower Hamlets targeting females and those from BME backgrounds. Liaising with the local community groups enables the activator to communicate with the target group and encourages them to take part in the groups being offered.
