Wednesday coached sessions_

A plan for return to coached run sessions on Wednesdays for our adult members

(amended April 12th 2021)

This is a plan for returning to track training  sessions for adults. It is aimed predominantly at those used to training with Sue and Liz at the track pre-Covid-19.

Please understand that we will have to adapt as we go along and as guidance develops and changes through the coming months.

We are currently limited to 50 athletes on the track at a time for the whole club so we will be holding 2 bookable sessions as below . No spectators/guests are allowed in the stadium. Guest athletes wishing to try a session must contact the coaches beforehand to see if a place is available. Contact the club via the contact page to register for trial sessions.

Access to the track will be via the lower car park gates nearest the tunnel under the railway line at the eastern end of the track.

The group will meet near the 300m start in front of the throws cage.


We will aim to have two coaches  minimum between them coaching 3 groups of 5 athletes. We will provide a 60 minute coached session comprising a balanced mix of drills and technique training and intensive intervals.

Club member athletes will need to use the spreadsheet found in ‘Phoenix (run) training’ WhatsApp group description to book their 60 minute time slot  ( anyone unable to use Whatsapp please contact the coaches Trial members should contact the coaches to see if space is available): Trial memebers must have aentered their details on the membership system before attending.




Athletes attend at their own risk and by attending agree to abide by the Covid-19 social distance guidance and respect all users of the track. Athletes must perform their own pre-attendance Covid-19 symptom assessment check ( see below) and must not attend if they have symptoms or are isolating.

Athletes must arrive at the meeting point already warmed up, we recommend at least a 15 minute warm-up run and dynamic stretches before the structured drills.

Please observe any current government health and safety advice.

A risk assessment is available and it is recommended that athletes familiarise themselves to ensure they comply with all the measures necessary to minimise risks. 


Here is some guidance that we ask all those attending all venues to follow:

  • Runners to  dress appropriately for the weather, and to bring warm / waterproof clothing for after session or if an emergency occurs.
  • Runners are to observe at least 2m social distance at all times and must not touch anyone else’s belongings.
  • Runners are to face away from all other people when deep breathing.
  • No spitting allowed.
  • No physical contact between humans.
  • No equipment to be shared / handled.
  • Water bottles and clothing to be personalised clearly and not shared.
  • Training is to be conducted in groups of up to 5 athletes.
  • Bring hand sanitising products for use in case you touch anything.
