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 2021-22

The England Athletics Club Run programme, powered by NURVV Run, 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
  • An opportunity for three runners to experience NURVV run insoles and the whole club to receive advice on running technique and biomechanics

As part of this collaboration, NURVV will be providing up to 3 free samples to each club for runners to trial and gauge a better understanding of their running form. Clubs will need to identify runners with a range of experience from relatively new runners to experienced club runners with a strong performance focus.
