What do we do?
THE MAIN THING IS TO HAVE FUN.
At the end of the evening the runners should be tired but they will have enjoyed it - mostly!
The basic staple of the club is the Tuesday night training. The members are divided into two groups each with at least two coaches. One group will do training exercises and running games at the school and the other group will do a training session around the town. A basic session will consist of:
Once a term we measure progress by using a session that involves being timed over a certain distance or seeing how far you get in a set time. The good news is that improvement in time or distance often leads to CHOCOLATES for a prize; the bad news is that the next time they have to go faster or further to get the chocolates.
In the Summer we use the school track and focus more on athletics' distances (100m to 1500m) and do some field event work.
Team Events: We enter teams in local junior team events. We take part in a Winter 3K five race series at Exeter Arena and we enter the best runners in The Westward League and Devon Championships. To Be confirmed for 2016
