Before anyone joins your group for the first time, you must ask them to complete and sign a copy of the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ)
Downloadable PARQ (Word document – updated for use post-GDPR – to be used in tandem with the Privacy Notice for your group.)
This is important because it will:
- Let you know about any health conditions they have that might affect their ability to exercise. If you have any concerns, make sure they have spoken to their doctor. You are also welcome to contact the jogscotland office for advice.
- Ensure they are covered by our insurance policy while jogging with your jogscotland group.
You can also download this PARQ for new and expectant mums (Word document – updated for use post-GDPR – to be used in tandem with the Privacy Notice for your group.)
There’s no need to send PARQs in to the jogscotland office – just keep them for your own records. Remember that to remain in line with GDPR, you should only keep information as long as it is needed, so it’s worth reviewing your PARQs from time to time, and shredding any for people who no longer run with you.
