Covid Statement

All club sessions are operating under the Covid-Secure guidelines from England Athletics. This means changes to the normal meeting places that are described on this and the relevent pages related to each of the sessions.

From November, Development Sessions are added back to the weekly schedule on Thursday. Therefore all sessions referred to in the list below are now back in operation with the exception of Sunday runs.

For Sunday runs we taken the view for now that the freedom of the smaller informal groups of six that have formed during Covid to run where they like is preferable to a more restricted set of risk-assessed routes that would be necessary for organised larger groups. If you would like to find a small group of club runners of similar pace to run with on a longer weekend run, please post in the Facebook group.

All organised club sessions must be booked by members. For sessions starting 1st November this is via the club’s session booking tool.

The tool is restricted to club members only. Anybody who is interested in joining the club is welcome to contact the Membership Secretary who will be happy to book them on to a session to “give it a try” before deciding whether to join the club. Please email membership@fvspartans.org.uk

Coaching

We have a large coaching team who have a wide range of running and technical abilities so we can fully support our runners. Members of our coaching team will be present at all sessions. You can recognise them in their bright orange vests with their names on the front. Our Head Coach and the members of the coaching team draw up a regular training programme, which is published in advance. This assists in planning your own training around that of the club.
