Racefit – Woodlands Academy (Broad Lane) – 6.15pm

The core fitness session is held inside the school in the winter and outside at Massey Fields in the summer. Very popular with new and long term runners alike!
This session is conducted by UKA approved coaches who are enhanced DBS checked.
Cost: £1 for club members, £3 otherwise
