Club Coaches and Run Leaders

We’d be lost without our coaches. The club supports members who are considering leading or coaching. There’s no correlation with being a fast runner – it’s far more important to be interested in helping others improve. If you are interested in becoming a coach please contact Ted Aston, the Coaching Secretary, to talk about how you can help the club through coaching.  Alternatively, you can speak to any of the club’s regular coaches about their experiences and see if you can help out in their sessions before you go on a coaching course.
