The Stowmarket Striders club proudly have a number of UK Athletics qualified coaches who coach on a 4 week rota in teams of 3 or more as shown below.
The qualifications achieved by our coaches are supported and run through UK Athletics and the Amateur Athletics Association. This qualification combined with their experience of road running enable them to provide structured and quality training for the club.
If you have any questions regarding your training, fitness, nutrition or any other areas of running, then please feel free to speak with one of them during a club training night.
Striders Tuesday’s Coach-led club training sessions are designed to reflect the seasonal changes in the typical race format throughout the year.
This will give those members who like to race a chance to incorporate a more appropriate club training session within their training plans.
For those members who don’t like to race, then the sessions will still continue to provide a varied and challenging training session appropriate for all running abilities aiming to improve your fitness levels.
Training session focus will be to build strength and stamina. Prior to each period of training our Coaches will publish the session broad outline plan below.
