Junior Training Session
May 25 @ 7:15 pm – 8:30 pm
Welcome to Craigswood –  I appreciate its a little late on a school night but it’s a more secure and appropriate venue than using a shared public space . Enter by gate in Front car park please  – 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 12 and 12 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 !
Committee have designated  these sessions will be chargeable to members at £2.00 (2021) ( potential new members are free for two weeks deciding if it’s for them and then chargeable thereafter as signed up members) – money raised will be re-invested in track hire, junior activities and event entries.
Please remember to dress for the weather – layers ! – this is an outside event.

Fiddlers Handicap – Cancelled
Jun 1 @ 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.
