On Mondays and Thursdays we train at Ashdown Track from 6pm to 6:45pm. During this session your child will get to experience a wide range of athletic activities such as sprinting, running, jumping and throwing. The session is at the track in summer and winter as the venue is flood lit. There is a club house onsite with toilets and a kitchen – Cup for tea for the parents and carers!

CURRENT VENUE: ST. JOSEPH’S SCHOOL – POOLE
USUAL VENUE: LOCKYER’S MIDDLE SCHOOL – CORFE MULLEN

Saturdays 10am – 11:30am

Our Saturday session is usually based at Lockyer’s Middle School in Corfe Mullen. However, due to COVID-19 social distancing measures, we are currently running this session from St. Joseph’s School in Poole. This session is an introduction to the development of athletics and covers a range of running (cross-country and sprinting), jumping, and throwing events. In the summer the training is outside on the sports field and in the winter it is in the school’s sports hall.

It is our passion to coach athletics that builds confidence and resilience while your child is being active and making new friends.

Poole Runners are an amazing club, who have supported me through my stages of becoming an athlete. They have great coaches and members, who encourage you to have fun and try hard. Poole Runners is something that I am so proud to be a part of.
George (Age 11), Athlete
My daughter loves Poole Runners, when she started she didn’t know anyone and they were so welcoming. Within a month she was at her first Sportshall competition with her newly formed friends. Quads is all about trying things out, she’s quite good at the running now but we all still take cover when she throws the vortex.

Sports Hall

During the Winter we hold a series of 3 or 4 indoor Sportshall events that include running, jumping and throwing for all abilities. The junior athletes are split into groups based on school year and then compete in a variety of events, scoring points in each.

All athletic competitions are completely optional and we encourage our athletes to just do their best, learn from the experience and enjoy themselves.
