The club can support members who are considering getting involved in leading or coaching. There’s no correlation with being a fast runner - it’s far more important to be someone who is interested in helping other people develop. So if you’re interested then please do take a look at the websites listed above, speak to one of the existing coaches or leaders, or contact the Coaching Rep.
