Swaledale Runners

Code of Conduct

Swaledale Runners aims to provide an environment where everyone feels welcome and able to participate. We embrace diversity and are committed to providing opportunities that are safe, inclusive, accessible and equitable.
We are open to anyone aged 18 or over, regardless of ability. For safety reasons we do not allow members to run with dogs on club nights.
In order to keep everyone safe, we require members to sign the following Code of Conduct:

As a responsible athlete, I will:

• respect the rights of every athlete and others involved in athletics and treat everyone equitably
• participate within the rules of the sport, respect decisions of coaches and officials
• anticipate and be responsible for my own needs, including being organised, having the appropriate equipment and being realistic about my physical condition
• in no way undermine, put down or belittle other athletes
• be respectful and considerate on the club’s social media
• never condone rule violations or the use of prohibited substances
• never engage in any inappropriate or illegal behaviour
• challenge inappropriate behaviour by others
• be aware that the club has a safeguarding policy in line with UKA policies 
• report any safeguarding concerns to the Welfare Officer

Breach of the Code of Conduct

In most situations a brief verbal warning will suffice.
In the event of a severe breach of the Code of Conduct, which has not been remedied after verbal warnings, the committee reserves the right to suspend a member from the club, in line with UK Athletics policies and procedures.
