Junior Training Session – Suspended
Mar 9 @ 7:15 pm – 8:30 pm
Group Training currently suspended due to COVID restrictions.
Welcome back to Craigswood – a different day and time but apparently the only slot available – I appreciate its a little late on a school night but it’s a more secure and appropriate venue than a shared public space like the Civic Centre. Enter by rear car park – adults appropriately distanced !
On arrival (at 7.15) jog 2-3 laps of the track to warm up then gather at usual in-track area to register and do warm up drills and games. Session may then split, depending on numbers, into under 11 and 11 and over. Aiming to finish around 8.15 – usually with a relay or straight race – warm down laps to follow if desired. Will also include non running things – like throws , long jumps – and the occasional bleep test !
Proposal is that, until the end of this year,  these sessions would be free to members ( and new members seeing if it’s for them) and then chargeable thereafter – money raised would be re-invested in junior activities and facilities.

Fiddlers Handicap – Cancelled
Apr 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Fiddlers is currently suspended due to COVID restrictions.  We hope to resume next month.

On the first Tuesday of every month, regular training is replaced by the Fiddlers Handicap, starting near St Margaret’s Academy (actual start depends on time of year).  Long and short courses are available for all standard.

Please go directly to the Start in plenty of time for your Predicted Start Time (see Fiddlers Page e for this months Times ).

First time runners should arrive promptly for brief induction and to be assigned a handicap time.  If you have a recent 5km time that would help.
