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 far more important to be interested in helping others develop. If you’re interested in getting involved then speak to one of the coaches or run leaders, or contact the Coaching Rep.
