Event Type

The Wednesday sessions offer a base level of training for endurance running, as recommended by England Athletics.

Session Level: Intermediate to Elite athletes
Age: School Year 8+
Timing: 7.30pm-8.30pm
Lead Coaches: Susie Duncan and Jim Wotton

The 60 minute sessions incorporate:
* warm up
* Winter months: a focus on cross-country running on the streets around Priory School:
* Summer months: concentration on track running with interval training on the grass athletics track
* cool down and stretching exercises

Whle the sessions are open to all, the club does expect everyone who attends these sessions to be able to comfortably run 5km.

Susie and Jim are assisted by a number of parents who run with the group as ‘back runners’.

Additionally, at any one time the club has a number of members and parents participating in Coaching and Fitness Running courses.

All our coaches are DBS checked and have attended and completed Safeguarding and First Aid courses.
