A very strong message, and wise words, from one of our Trustees, Sally Gunnell on International Women's Day #IWD2021 #ChooseToChallenge#IWD2021 💜#ChooseToChallengeI raise my hand to challenge gender inequality and bias.When I was an elite athlete, I was told several negative things about myself and my ability, by influential individuals in my sport, that had I chosen to listen to them, I may not have achieved my 4 major track titles.Luckily for me I chose not to listen to them. The people that were important to me were positive and supportive.I say to all women, you have the power to be the best you can be. Choose to believe in yourself, choose to be positive, choose to be your best. Choose it for YOU! You got this! 💜#powerfulwomen #genderequality #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerment #womeninspiringwomen #womeninbusiness #womeninfluencers #mondaymotivation #mondayvibes #monday ...

With the new Government regulations put in place yesterday, and the ever changing situation with regard to guidelines from England Athletics, we will not be holding any 300m/400m Hurdles Training days from October to December 2020. We did have dates booked, which we have now cancelled, and still have dates booked for January to March 2021, and will make a decision towards the end of the year with regard to these.Obviously we are all disappointed that we cannot go ahead with these, but the most important thing is the safety of you all, both coaches and athletes. Train when you can, in a safe environment.So please continue to stay safe and stay healthy. ...
