Thank you to all of our coaches who have given their time to support the Group Sessions and thank you also to those athletes who have regularly attended and made the evenings really special for all of us. Try and get your runs in early in the day over the festive period, and you can then relax and enjoy the refreshments that form such an important part later in the day. We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable time.Please note that following the survey of training session start times we will be reverting to a 7pm start on both Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning on Tuesday 4 January 2022.

Important message to all those attending our Training Sessions and those looking to do races
If you have not yet renewed your membership for the current year. It is important for you, and important for the club as the insurance cover for incidents that occur in training with the club only applies to fully paid up club members. If you are not sure if you have paid, you can check with Tamsin Finch whose details are on the membership application forms. It is also a good idea to pay the additional £15 England Athletics registration fee if you want to run in the Chiltern XC League and other races.

PLEASE NOTE: the COVID-19 Risk Assessment has been amended for current guidance and change in location so you must have another look at it.
