Sessions take place on a Tuesday and Thursday at 3.30pm in the summer terms and are led by experienced coaches, some of whom have performed at the highest level. There are other specialist sessions scheduled outside of this time. Athletics is a sport that complements all other winter sports and is very popular for this reason.
