On Mondays and Thursdays we train at Ashdown Track from 6:45pm to 8pm. During this session athletes receive specialist coaching in their chosen discipline: sprinting, endurance, hurdles or field. The session runs through 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!

BROADSTONE REC – BROADSTONE

Saturdays 11:30am – 12:30am

Our Saturday Cross Country/ Squad Run session is based at Broadstone Recreation Ground. This training session focuses on developing off-road running on grass and parkland terrain. This is perfect preparation for the Cross Country competition season which runs through autumn and winter.

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