There are plenty of opportunities for young runners to race on the fells, cross country and in Park Runs. Young Toddies have achieved very good results in their age groups. Click here for a race calendar of local events (and some further afield) that juniors can compete in.
Tuesday Training Sessions
We have regular Tuesday sessions for juniors aged between 8 and 14, led by qualified and safety-checked coaches, which mix fun with structured training for fitness, health and self-respect. Activities are graduated to suit different ages and fitness levels.
At the end of the session, we usually issue best effort trophies (returned the following week).
We also run an annual Junior Grand Prix, comprising a series of local races in which juniors can participate to win medals.
For more details about Tuesday sessions, please contact Darren Tweed. (Please note that there is currently a waiting list for the juniors, so there could be a delay between your enquiry and an invitation to join Tuesday sessions).
Thursday Coaching Sessions
For over-13s, our Thursday sessions build on the fundamentals of running and aim to prepare juniors for longer running activities and events. Sessions are structured to include a mix of technique, strength and conditioning, and endurance.
For more details about Thursday sessions, please contact Claire Shaw. (Please note that there is currently a waiting list for Thursday sessions, so there could be a delay between your enquiry and an invitation to join).
To order, please contact Claire Shaw or ask at junior training sessions.
Parents Please NoteOur child protection regime requires parents to submit a current DBS certificate to remain on the premises during training sessions, whether assisting or as spectators. All coaches are DBS checked.
The club has a maximum of 24 participants to comply with coach-to-child ratios, so your child may be put on a waiting list if we are oversubscribed.
