Training is provided by the club coaches on various days throughout the week. Details of clubs can be found on the Clubs page. There are also coaching courses available locally and opportunities for athletes from different clubs to train together - see the Coaching/Training page for more details.


For upcoming fixtures in the county (and those elsewhere involving county teams) go to the Calendar page; for the latest results go to the 2018 results page; for reports on selected events go to the Reports page; for the leading recent performances go to the 2018-19 indoor season page and/or the 2018 outdoor season page.
