Do you want to become the next Paula Radcliffe, Alistair Brownlee or just become a Puma?
Who is the club for?
Our Juniors running club is open to anyone between the ages of 7 (in school year 2) and 18.
Whether you’re a complete beginner or someone who has run before; our coaching team will tailor activities to your ability.
What does it involve?
Each week there’ll be a variety of training session to improve your running, these will include:
- Building strength and stamina
- Working on running techniques
- Running related games
- Having fun
You’ll be training with a qualified coach and coaching assistants, between them they have a lot of years and many many miles under their belts. Everyone on the coaching team is 100% committed to making sure you receive quality support and coaching.
With a mixture of activities that include time on the playing field mixed with on/off road running away from the sports club. There’ll also be a few opportunities to put your new found running skills to the test in some runs organised by the Pumas.
Do I need anything?
Because this is England, and we’ll be training outside, you’ll need to come prepared!
So remember to bring:
- A waterproof jacket
- Suitable trainers
- Hats and gloves (if it’s especially chilly!)
- From September – Hi Viz clothing (head torches and flashing arm bands would be an advantage)
Running can be thirsty work, so we’d also recommend bringing a drink with you.
Where and when is it?
The sessions will be held at Northowram Community Sports & Activity club:
Sessions will run every Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm except during school holidays.
