Sessions are held on Wednesdays, 5:30-6:30, at Hastings High School, Burbage.

You can try out the club for your first 3 weeks free, and after this membership costs £40.00 per year, renewed in January.

If you would like to come along and try the club, please fill in the membership form and choose the Free Trial option. Please also email us or check the Facebook group before your first attendance, in case there are any changes to the week’s session details.

For athletes of Primary School age a parent must stay throughout the session.

We don’t have sessions during school Christmas and Easter holidays and Half Terms, but we do have sessions during the Summer Holidays (except the first two weeks).

Activities and events

During the summer, we train outside on the school field. During the winter, we train indoors in the school hall.

We are not just a running group – we cover all track and field events, including Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Shot, Discus, Hammer, Javelin and Hurdles.

We compete in the Leicestershire Juniors League, which consists of Quad Kids – 4 events for each child held at Saffron Lane – for School Years 3 -6.

We also do Sportshall competitions which are indoor events held over the winter for School Years 5 – 10.

We also participate in the Cross Country season from October till March which are held at various locations around the county, at the same time and venues as the seniors’ XC races.

Juniors aged 12 years old and over can also train with the Seniors, when accompanied by a responsible adult.
