Lockdown Training (Junior Fundamentals)

Due to the national lockdown measures currently in place, we can’t train as a group. But, that doesn’t stop us, as coaches, supporting you and doesn’t stop you, as athletes, keeping fit, active and in training so when we get back to training we are all ready to hit the ground running.

We’ll be updating this page weekly with some suggested sessions for you.

When running / training please remember these key guidance and safety points:

– Only run or train with members of your household, your support bubble, or one person from another household outdoors in a public place (maintaining social distancing).

– If you are running in the dark, wear reflective / bright clothing and lights.

– Run in well-lit areas.

– Give priority to pedestrians.

– Have fun and stay safe.

If you have any questions, send them direct to the coaches via the Contact page
