The coaches recognise how much work the children put in and we encourage that everyone takes part in as many local events as possible. We will never demand that a child must compete but breaking that ‘fear factor’ often leads to great feeling of pride and achievment. Seeing lots of smiley faces is what the coaches work for and the parents benefit from.

There are local running events such as parkrun, as well as annual events specifically for juniors which we encourage you to support and share. We will add these to the Club Calendar but if you hear of an event which is not listed, please let us know at [email protected]  

For full access to the Club Calendar, please log in to the website using details provided as part of your menbership.

If you are interested, there is a South Central Junior Series which offers recognised competition with other clubs in the region, and can lead to selection to compete in the Inter Regional Championships (IRC) once a year. This is a national event with representatives from 14 regions across the UK. Have you got what it takes? You won't know, until you TRI...

If you are unsure of what events may be suitable, please ask your coach, who will be happy to help.
