As more and more people become involved in running, England Athletics acknowledge that there is a need to make sure those responsible for leading these sessions have opportunities to improve their skills and develop as their groups grow.
The England junior mountain running team retained the overall team trophy they won last year in Scotland by winning the team race in 3 out of 4 events at the British and Irish Junior Mountain Running Championships and Home Countries International which took place in Glendalough, Ireland on 20th September 2014.
As part of England Athletics programme the Endurance Performance And Coaching Centre (EPACC) at St Mary's University College, Twickenham, would like to invite coaches and athletes to a workshop from that will be based on planning the athletic year.

British Athletics are promoting a series of free Para Athletics Introduction Days for aspiring disabled athletes to train with specialist coaches across the Paralympic athletics events - sprints, ambulant throws, seated throws and wheelchair racing. If you enjoy sport and want to try something new, have met one of the Parallel Success team at an event, or joined an athletics club already these events are for you!
The North East Coach Development Days are free and open to all coaches and run leaders of any level of experience who feel they would benefit from attending. Each day consists of a discipline-specific set of workshops: throws, jumps, speed and endurance, with follow-up sessions early in 2015.
Accredited Club status recognises the safety and effectiveness of Athletics clubs and also enables access to funds unavailable to those without accreditation.

If you are a Coaching Assistant, Athletics Coach or Coaching in Running Fitness coach why not book onto the South Coaching Conference? With bookings set to close on Friday 19 September for the South Coaching Conference, coaches are urged to secure their places.
This year at the Northern Coaching Conference we want to focus on supporting leaders and coaches to develop their knowledge, practice and skill to move from Good to Great. Coaches can come together and help improve what we do through the sharing of best practice as well as having the opportunity to explore concepts through practical sessions.
