RUN CLUB – BANK OF NY MELLON
What is Run Club? Who is it for? Do I have to be fit?
Run Club services runners of all levels from those interested in getting started to very experienced competitors. We provide training plans and weekly sessions for several different levels of experience.
What are the goals of it?
Run Club helps you get a framework around your running so you don’t have to spend time designing your training plan or thinking about what workout to do next. Simply follow the plan and use your coaches to guide you when you have questions.
How long does it go on for?
The Run Club is set up for 6 months initially but we hope it will be a continuous feature of BNY Mellon.
How often do I have to run?
That is your choice – we recommend you implement three weekly runs as part of getting started. Experienced runners will choose to run more whereas some of you may only be able to commit to 1-2 runs per week.
How many people are doing it?
Current interest suggests around 80~ people in BNY Mellon want to be part of starting up this club.
If more people than 150 people sign up, the club will receive even more services including an onsite Physical Therapist for a full day every fortnight and there would be even more onsite workshops. Get your colleagues involved!
How much does it cost?
€20 per month for 6 months – Total €120 upfront.
How can I pay?
You can pay in person when we are onsite or you can pay on this page.
What are the key dates?
We start on April 11th and the plans will loosely target the Grant Thornton Corporate Challenge on September 6th for those who wish to run the race, you can also substitute this race with another if you cannot make it.
You will be sent a calendar of events as soon as we confirm dates with BNYM HR – including the kick-off event and training of the ‘Run Instructors’ from among staff members. If you’re interested to take on that role – let us know!
