Club Coaches

All our coaching takes place on a voluntary basis. The club can support members who are considering leading or coaching. There’s no correlation with being (or having been) a fast runner, it’s more important to be interested in helping others develop. If you're interested in getting involved, speak to one of the existing coaches or leaders, or contact the Coaching Reps (Norman and Andrew) at
