Amsterdam Half Marathon – 21 October 2018

Caroline Wheelhouse was determined to have a great race at Amsterdam to get over this years London Marathon where things did not go to plan.

“Had a great race yesterday, feeling really comfortable and a good neg split. Really enjoyable weekend altogether, made friends with a Slovenian girl and spent most of the time together laughing and getting lost (like you do). Time for a bit of recovery now!”

Well, not only did Caroline run the fastest half marathon of the year in the FV60 age group, she ran the second fastest half marathon of all time on the runbritain rankings, click here.  An amazing performance and well deserved.

Great running by Stuart Lindsay as well after having calf trouble in the days leading up to the race.

Coaching courses

Dear Club Secretaries

Course Flyer -4.10.2018

England Athletics are now running the ATHLETIC COACH level qualification which is the progression from the Coaching Assistant (or previous level 1).   These courses are specialised and only a few are booked each year so please if you are interested and are aimed at those looking to coach athletics to a high standard across age ranges.  Please note with this course you can book on Day 1 & 2, then choose a Day 3 and 4 separately to suit your availability, this will help with coaches long term planning.

We have an Athletic Coach course starting in just over two weeks and we only host these course a few times a year in each region and it would be a shame to not fill it!!

Numbers are going up slowly so to try and avoid cancelling I am contacting all North Area Club Secretaries and a few regular contacts.

**Please can you email this to all your coaches to see if anyone may be interested, the deadline for cancelling if numbers are low is MONDAY 22ND OCTOBER.** Continue reading

Endurance runners time trial

The traditional Town Moor time Trial starts again next Tuesday….23rd October 2017. We meet up on Town moor Avenue from 6:00 to start running at 6:30. Numbers will be issued from 6pm and all the runners are setting off at 6:30pm this time.

It is then 3 laps of the course which is shown here.  This is an excellent event where all the club comes together, it is very sociable and also an excellent training tool, with the slower runners having their chance to finish a race in 1st position and the faster runners there are targets to chase.

The total distance is just under 5 miles, all on tarmac.  We hope to put a marshal or 2 out on the course.
