Club Run

Club Run offers participating clubs a series of coaching sessions led by experienced coaches to support their runners, leaders and coaches in working towards improved performance at a specific event or race distance. To date, the programme has supported over 200 clubs, 1000 club leaders and coaches and 6,500 club runners.

Club Run 2021-2022

The England Athletics Club Run programme is a free initiative specifically aimed at supporting road running clubs.

The programme supports runners, leaders and coaches through a series of three practical coached sessions taking place at your club, on club nights delivered by some of England’s leading endurance coaches. Sessions are tailored to the needs of your club and can include a range of activities including running technique, interval training and tempo running.

With the easing of Coronavirus restrictions we are now able to restart physical club run sessions but you can work with your Club Run Coach for any combination of physical or virtual delivery to suit your needs.

You can expect to receive;

  • Three exciting and engaging coached sessions from an experienced England Athletics coach
  • Advice and support around how to get the most of your club sessions
  • Ideas for structuring training sessions, warm ups, drills and conditioning


Warley Woods Pacers:

The Club Run sessions have been hugely beneficial to our club in terms of the inspiration and motivation they have provided to our athletes, but also the support and encouragement they have given the coaching and leadership team.

Your observations and interventions have not only highlighted what we are already doing well, but very importantly given us ideas and guidance on how we can deliver a better experience and improved outcomes for our athletes as we begin the new year.

I believe programmes like Club Run are so important to clubs such as ours in that they not only provide an external check on what we are doing, but help show us improvements we can make in both training content and delivery. All in all the experience has been entirely positive and has increased engagement throughout the club.

Bishop’s Stortford Running Club:

The warm-up incorporated elements of running technique which I’ve not been exposed to before. I thoroughly enjoyed the engaging and positive way our Club Run session was delivered. Thank you, England Athletics!
