Club Training

Update 19/12/2020

Training on Tuesday 22nd Dec has been cancelled while we await updated guidance from England Athletics.


Autumn and Winter training

As we move into our Autumn/Winter training programme, we are also going to take another step towards normality in regards the training format. The most significant change is that we will no longer be offering a 7.15pm training session. This session was initially introduced as a way of increasing capacity when we could only train in groups of 6. When the rules were relaxed and each coach could have 12 people in their group, it meant that we could offer more spaces at 6.30pm. Consequently, demand for the 7.15pm session has dropped significantly, and the group is no longer viable.

From Tuesday 22nd Sept:

  • All sessions will start at 6.30pm.
  • All sessions will be for 1hr.
  • All groups will meet at the Leisure Centre and then run to/from the training venue.
  • We will aim to have a minimum of 3 groups every week (subject to coach availability).
  • On weeks where the sessions are over-subscribed, we will randomly select people from each group.
