Athletics club and charity, Fitmums Friends, is celebrating winning the Coaching Intervention of the Year award at last week's 2017 UK Coaching Awards. Now in their 20th year, the UK Coaching Awards recognise and reward excellent coaching at all levels across the UK.
Mind, the mental health charity is teaming up with R.E.D January to encourage people to Run Every Day throughout January to support their own mental wellbeing, while raising awareness and support for mental health. How far or fast people run, or walk is completely up to them, but by getting active for 31 consecutive days in January they can not only kick-start their own year, but also make a positive difference to the lives of others.
England Athletics have a series of upcoming Physical Preparation workshops scheduled from January to March 2018 which are designed as a progression for coaches / leaders that have attended England Athletics Movement Skills workshops or are experienced in the delivery of physical preparation training.

More than 50 athletes and coaches gathered for an event in the Forest of Dean to train and take part in workshop sessions with Bud Baldaro, Andi Drake, Tracy Barlow, Nick Anderson and others.
