A while ago, the Committee applied to be part of a programme run by England Athletics aimed at supporting clubs to develop their runners.

"Club Run offers participating clubs a free series of practical coaching sessions led by coaches linked to the England Athletics coach development programmes with experience in off track running.

The Club Run sessions aim to support clubs and their runners to achieve more through their love of running."

We were successful in our bid and on Wednesday 20th our first session will take place at the Rowing Club at the usual time of 6.15. The session will start with an initial briefing by the representative from England Athletics and then a series of running activities on grass near the Rowing Club.  This is aimed at all levels of runner, from beginner to experienced athlete. Don't be put off by the use of words like coaching or think that this isn't for you. There will not be the usual club organised run, so please come along to the Club Run session and give it a go!

After the session there will be a short talk in the Rowing Club function room, for which we will provide some refreshments. We should be finished by 8.30, but you are welcome to stay for as long as the bar is open. To give me an an idea of the numbers for catering, can you please confirm by e-mail (, Facebook page or in person, if you will be joining us.
