COACHES

 

The coaches/run leaders at Burnden aim to support you in your running by offering a variety of sessions each week that will meet your needs, whether you are…

• training for a specific race in the club championship

• seeking a less intensive session, as you recover from a race the day before

• seeking a specific type of session, e.g. hill training or interval training

• new to running

• wanting to build up to a certain distance/achieve a certain pace per mile

• returning to running after an injury

Sessions are available each Monday at 7pm at Smithills Sports Centre (except Bank Holidays), or at 6pm on Mondays with the New Starters Group for those who are new to running or returning to running after injury. All groups meet at 7pm on the first Monday of the month (excepting bank holidays) on the evening when the monthly meeting takes place.

There is also a circuit training session that runs every Thursday at 7.30-8.30pm at Smithills Sports Centre. The circuit session is a group-led stations workout designed to increase muscular strength, endurance, aerobic fitness and co-ordination.

The coaches/run leaders at Burnden hold a combination of UK Athletics (UKA) accredited qualifications at Level 1 and Level 2, in Leadership in Running and Fitness and Coach in Running and Fitness.
