We now appear to have at least 8 club members signed up for Spring marathons and in order to help the less experienced, we thought we could set up a WhatsApp Spring Marathon Group where those doing Spring Marathons can sign up and post messages, arrange to get together for training, arrange a programme of build up races to assess fitness, and request help with different aspects of marathon running.
If you have not yet notified the coaches that you are training for a Spring marathon please do so and join the group it becomes active.

How to book into your sessions
1. Athletes must go to this link and check that there are places available at their preferred session(s) - check the number, NOT the percentage of people opted to attend. If you are the first person you will not see any responses.
2. Athletes will then need to go to this link to then register their intention and ensure that they have read the COVID19 Risk Assessment.
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.
