Training

Our main training nights are Mondays and Wednesdays from approximately 6pm to 8pm (individual training groups may vary). In addition to these training nights some groups also run additional sessions on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Club has access to a range of UKA qualified coaches, covering most athletics disciplines. Our coaches have been DBS checked and offer their sessions free of charge.

Athletes are to adhere to the rules of the venue at which they train and to those of the club.

Basic rules of training on the track include:

  • Being aware of other athletes at all times.
  • Do not cross over the middle of the track as this is a throws area.
  • Look for athletes running around before crossing the track.
  • When on the track, if you hear someone shout “Track’’ it means move out the way!
  • Do not misbehave.
