Pollution Policy

Pollution Policy

Hey! We often have the occasional smoggy day in Beijing & Shanghai and you might question whether or not to sport that day! It’s important to take a sensible approach to training both for training effectiveness and enjoyment! So, please find below Heyrobics & HeyRunning’s Pollution Policy – use as a reference for your own training or if you’re going to join one of our runs!

AQI Below 100 – Session goes ahead as scheduled (high intensity training…or as intensive as you want it to be)

AQI Between 100 – 200 – Session scaled down (less cardio, more strength training)

AQI Above 200 :

  • Outdoor session & all HeyRunning sessions cancelled!
  • Indoor sessions will depend on the air purifying system in each venue. Check the HeyScheduleWeibo  or our wechat group for latest updates. If the session is cancelled we’ll post here minimum 90 minutes before the session start time!

To be able to know in advance when pollution is likely to drop we find that THIS index is often useful! And, for hourly AQI updates we this THIS index!

For any questions regarding our pollution policy please send a quick email to heyrunning@heyrobics.com & we’ll be back in touch shortly! Alternatively, come say Hey(!) before or after a session & we’ll be happy to speak with you then!
