 Can I request all athletes bring adequate clothing and fluids to each training session.  An extra hoody or warmer T shirt is required especially on the cooler evenings.  It is not necessary to train in track spikes.  In fact it is not advisable in winter.  Ordinary training shoes are preferred.  If you need any extra club kit please contact me and we can get some organised.  Club colours should be worn at all league meetings.

If an athlete feels unwell take the safer approach and rest until better. If you have any questions or queries about training or running in general please contact me either mobile number email or Face book whichever is easier. Mobile 07957 209635 email amazinggrace1@btinternet.com

I hope you have all enjoyed your summer break and can’t wait to get back to school/college.
