National and Regional Athlete and Coach workshops

This autumn and winter England Athletics has launched a new series of event specific workshops which see coaches and their athletics coming together for training and development opportunities. These events have been well received by the coaches and athletes with more events planned for early 2018 that you can now book on to.

Endurance Masterclasses with Malcolm Brown

England Athletics is delighted to announce a series of exclusive opportunities to sit and chat with Malcolm Brown about all things endurance. Malcolm has been coach to many international athletes as well as Olympic triathlon medalists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee. Numbers are very limited to allow time for coaches to interact and get the most out off the session with Malcolm. Each session is also followed by one of our Marathon Evening sessions with Nick Anderson and other experts.
