We are a younger section of the Clowne Road Runners running club. We aim to allow young runners aged 12 to 16 to be able to come and have fun with other young runners to increase their confidence and their enjoyment and ability in running, before they are ready to join our adult club.
We welcome runners aged 12-16 years old, of any ability to come along, meet new friends and have fun running! The first block of 6 sessions will begin on Wednesday 8th Janiary 2020 and will run to February half term.
Parent/guardians need to register on behalf of their child to book on sessions.
Note: Our leadership insurance covers children aged 12 and over only, if you would like to take part and are under the age of 12, then we cannot be responsible for you and are not covered as part of our insurance. This doesn’t mean that you can’t get involved, just get in touch and we can arrange something.

Sessions are £2 for members of the junior club and £3 for non-members. We offer 4 taster sessions, the first being free and the following 3 being just £1. Thereafter, we ask you to join the club if you wish to for £25, which includes a CRR junior T shirt.
They will take place on Wednesdays at 6:30pm at Barlborough Country Park. For those who need to be dropped off, the top car park on Clowne Road will be open and we have access to the changing rooms if needed. We will most likely be working at that top end near the car park anyway.
We have portable floodlights for use on the field, but we ask participants to wear head torches and high vis also.
Each session will include a multi-sports warm-up, a run session and a cool down and stretching . The run session will change depending on the group and the different interests and abilities. Sessions will be on Barlborough Country Park. Meet near the changing rooms. Footwear for grass running is required (simple trainers may be fine unless the grass is wet, trail running shoes are fine).
We meet at least once a week to practice running technique and thinking like a runner. There are a mixture of small group activities as well as longer runs where we will put our training into practice . We will meet at set parkruns also and keep a log of times to see if the juniors can improve upon their own times. We are setting up a grand prix list of races that we recommend for the juniors to gain points towards getting prizes at our awards night.
We really need you to register and book on here to show us how many we are expecting.
