U11s Endurance Squad. Stop press!Stop press!

Unfortunately, due to the latest national lockdown, all training has been suspended until further notice.

We will of course let you know as soon as possible when we can resume training sessions.

In the meantime, keep running (mums and dads get out there with your kids!)

Stop Press! Stop Press! Race at Prestwold Hall on 13th December.

Sport England and England Athletics have eased the measures placed on U18 sport meaning that u18 (plus parents/guardians of course) are now allowed to travel to areas for competition regardless of tiers.

In such case, I wanted to advise you of an opportunity to race at Prestwold Hall on Sunday 13th December. Initially this event was offered only to Leicestershire competitors however now that the restrictions are eased the event is opened up to all.

Categories are u11/13/15/17. There will also be races throughout the day for adults.

Rest assured that the event is fully Covid secure. For those who were there for the school’s event on the 31st October you will be pleased to hear that we are using a different course. We will however still be using the now infamous multiple start system!

For possibly the last opportunity to race this year click the following link!

U11s Endurance Squad: please read!!


As we go into winter training, we need to assess the ability of our athletes to cope with the sessions.

With that in mind we have organised a couple of assessment sessions which will take place on the track  on Tuesday 13th October and Thursday 22nd October.

Please ensure that your child attends either of these sessions. They will need to be at the club no later than 5.50pm. The assessment will be over by 6.40pm after which training will continue until the usual finishing time of 7.30pm.

We look forward to seeing you then!

U11s Endurance Squad: WATER BOTTLES!!

We are aware that the weather has been very warm recently, to say the least! Some athletes have consequently begun to bring water bottles with them.

This is against the rules that were established when we returned to training after lockdown when, for Covid-related reasons, we stipulated that NO bottles were to be brought by athletes.

Some athletes bringing bottles is likely to cause problems with those that have adhered to the rules, and furthermore we do not wish to risk bottles being carriers of the virus.

There is sufficient evidence in the running world that hydration is not an issue with the length and type of training that we do.

During the day of training, it is imperative that parents ensure that their children are sufficiently hydrated in preparation for the session. If this is done, there should be no need for athletes to bring water.

In case ONLY of emergency, the coaches will have a bottle of water.

We thank you in advance.
