 Starting from age 8 we have an athletics fundamentals group, and a young runners group providing a variety of opportunities for young athletes who want to get into athletics.

We compete in Quadkids and Sportshall athletics events in Leicestershire and encourage our runners to take part in the Leicestershire primary schools races and junior park runs. 

Contact Andy at for more information.


We have training groups and coaches covering all the events in track and field. We train regularly on a Monday and Wednesday at the Loughborough University track and during the winter we also hire some of the indoor HIPAC facilities for those groups not brave enough to face the weather.


For a full list of our training groups and times please see here.


We enter teams in a wide variety of competitions throughout the year across all age groups. The U11s compete in Sportshall and Quadkids athletics, our Junior teams compete in the Upper and Lower age group YDL competitions as well as Road Relays and Cross country during the winter. Our Seniors and Masters also run on the Road and Cross Country, and during the summer compete in the Midlands league and  Masters league.

Open Events

We are extremely proud of our Open Track & Field Events that we put on through the summer, and of the volunteers, coaches and officials who help make them such a success. There are not many other events that can attract 400 entries on a Monday night and a big shout out to Luke at JustTiming, EntryForSports and our photographer @athleticphotography for making these such great competitions.
