Family and Junior Running Sessions

These sessions are especially geared towards family activity and junior-specific coached sessions. Junior runners should be having fun, learning great movement patterns and their running developed towards ‘fast’.  These sessions will be geared towards just this. Fun learning about running whilst, well, running!
Many of the ATR Juniors will be along and helping with the sessions, perhaps our coaches of the future too.
These sessions are suitable for age 9+, under 12’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. It will be primarily outside so please make sure you come with suitable clothing!
Some of these are also listed in the Coached Sessions section.
