Leamington’s athletics section welcomes people from all backgrounds, abilities and all ages from 9. We are a true multi discipline club, so whether you want to walk, jog, run, participate in the many track and field disciplines then the athletics section is here to help you achieve your potential and most importantly have fun. Our main track and field training is at Edmondscote athletics track on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our road running group also meets at the track on Tuesdays with a further group meeting at Old Leamingtonians RFC on Wednesday evenings.
We would like to dispel some urban myths about athletics clubs, lets start with the biggest
“I am too slow for a athletics club” – We have a wide breadth of abilities, yes we do have international standard and county standard athletes.
“But your desire to participate is what counts most” – In the 2013 Two Castles race, Warwickshire’s biggest participation 10k Leamington C&AC had runners in every quarter of the race.
So what ever your speed we will already have a member around your ability who can guide you with our coaches to better your potential.
How do I find out more, what are my next steps?
Under 15s – The preferred approach of UK Athletics our national governing body, is a multi discipline approach with the focus firmly on fun. Our young athletes can find out for themselves what disciplines they prefer. This builds their overall sporting skills equipping them for a sporting filled life and keeps them healthy and injury free as they develop and grow.
If the child has already developed an event preference then speak to our coaches on how this can be built into an overall multi discipline approach. You can either contact one of our coaches through our track and field training groups, visit us at the track or use our general contact below.
“I want to get involved in track and field” – Membership does not guarantee coaching but it does give you access to our training groups and coaches. Our coaches are volunteers all they ask in return for their time is a willingness to compete. So if you tick that box then we should be able to provide coaching. If track and field maybe of interest then please visit us at the track or use our general contact below.
“I can run 5 miles in about an hour” – One of our existing running groups on a Tuesday or Wednesday evenings are likely to be suitable. You can either contact one of our coaches through our cross country and road training groups, visit us at the track or use our general contact below.
