We will be training while the event is going on. Meet ready to run at 10.15am in the event arena, accessed from TN15 0SR / TQ551534, the entrance to Knole Park at junction of St Julian Road and Fawke Wood Road. The theme is Middle Distance racing. Car parking is on the roadside - take care!

Sat 7 Sept 2019 - Training for an extended morning, before moving on to the Peter Palmer Relays. Get your club to enter a team!

Sept 28-29 - Junior Inter-Regional Championships

Training starts at 10.15am ready to run, unless stated otherwise. We start with a warm-up, then technical exercises to develop our skills. We stop for lunch (bring a packed lunch) at about 12.30pm and then finish the afternoon with some form of team exercise to put into practice our new skills.

Exercises are planned to ensure that juniors return regularly to our coaching team for feedback during the session. Sometimes we work in pairs and juniors are often shadowed by a coach.

Facilities are basic – there are generally no toilets. First aid cover is always provided.
