Training Courses

Ali, Sarah & Sophie attended the second day of their Forerunners course. This fantastic course focuses on women in running and sounds fascinating we are looking forward to Ali, Sarah & Sophie bringing all their knowledge, experience & expertise to future training sessions.

Ali said "During day 2 we discussed strategies for coaching teenage girls, took part in a superb club development & volunteer recruitment workshop and the day was topped off with a discussion on helping youth female athletes with training around their menstrual cycle"

Thanks for the update Ali.
