Coach and Run Leaders
Lisa Herbert (pictured) is the Didcot Runners Club Coach. What does this mean, what is a coach, how can I benefit from a club that has one?
One can't say it better than England Athletics (EA) themselves:
"Coaches and leaders are the backbone of our sport, they inspire, support and work across all events, ability levels, aspirations, and ages to develop all athletes. Through this we aim to produce better athlete enjoyment and performance levels."
Lisa is qualified to coach with English Athletics Coach in Running Fitness (CiRF). All our run leaders are qualified to lead sessions with English Athletics Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF). Lisa and the Run Leaders organise Thursday interval / endurance sessions to help everyone develop and train for a range of events.
