Sidmouth Running Club Junior Section

Sidmouth Running Club has an England Athletics qualified Juniors coach.

Sessions are held on Sunday mornings from 10-11.15

8-12 year olds

FUNdamentals of Athletics is a 10 week course run term time in the Spring, Summer and Autumn.  It introduces children to the essential skills in running, jumping and throwing.  We use fun games and activities to develop these skills.  This course is usually based in Sidmouth College, usually in the field or out of the College Gym.  The course doesn’t run in the winter months as this would have to be a 10 week session purely inside and because our run leaders have a heavy training and race schedule in these winter months.

12-14 year olds

Our 12-14 year old group concentrates more on running, and will meet with a qualified run leader before going on a varied run, working up to 5km distances.  Each session consists of a warm up, running activities to develop a particular running skill and stretching.  During the winter this group meets on Sunday morning at Sidmouth Sailing Club at 10am and the session finishes at 11.15am.

If your child would like to join us then complete the forms below and come along.  It’s a drop in session with no commitment to come each week but for our planning we ask that you let us know by Saturday if you are coming.
