First Training Session & Club Social

First Training Session: Thursday 26th September 

The great thing about athletics is we don't do trials as EVERYONE is welcome, no matter your ability but as it's the first session back we are planning an epic relay session which is looking to be so much fun and great way to get to know the other club members. After this session we will help you find the best training group for you and give you all the training information you need for the year ahead.

First Social: Wednesday 2nd October 

Your Social Secs Nancy & Rhys have really lived up to 'go big or go home' for this social. You will be able to find more details about this event closer to the time in our Facebook group. You don't want to miss out or you'll be feeling proper FOMO for the whole year! 

If you want any information about the club you can contact us via the form at the bottom of the page or by contacting one of our committee members

'Give it a Go' October
Throughout the month of October we have arranged a variety of taster sessions across all athletics disciplines for everyone to have a go at. If you are new to athletics, we recommend that you attend as many taster sessions as possoble to find the discipline which you most enjoy. You will be able to sign up to the taster session at both Fresher's Fayres.
