Junior Coaches

Meet the coaches who lead our junior sessions.  All hold qualifications which mean they are appropriately insured:

  • Athletics Coach – fully insured to lead junior athletes
  • Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF) – insured to lead runners aged 12 and above

All have up-to-date criminal record checks by the government’s Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
