Training & Coaching

We are fortunate to have a team of committed coaches that are devoted to the development of our members and they give up their time week after week (in all weathers) at training, to make sure you get the best out of your development in a secure and safe environment.

The club has 5 members that are fully qualified UK Athletics coaches but are always on the look out for more people to join the team, which can begin with a Coaching Assistant course via Scottish Athletics.

In addition to the regular Tuesday night club runs, training is offered (free of charge) on a rotational basis between track and hill sessions. In the winter months, the hill sessions start from Berth Park School and from the Jubilee car park, Kinnoull during the summer. The track sessions take place at the George Duncan Athletics Arena, Perth. These sessions are a mixture of fun and hard work and are for everyone.

The coaches are also on hand to help and support with any specific development needs of any member, whether that be help with a training plan, running form assessment or even Garmin technical support!

Bookings for the sessions are made via Spond, so that we have an accurate record of attendance.
