Ashford Athletics Club, Kent

Coach: Chris Hobbs

Contact: hobbsrom@ntlworld.com

Venue: Julie Rose Stadium, Ashford, Kent

Training: Tuesdays + Thursdays.

Website: www.ashfordac.org.uk

Standards welcome: All standards welcome, especially Young Age Groups

At Ashford AC, everyone under 13 years old is encouraged to try all events, including race walking, and not pressured into specialising in any particular event.

Beginners in the U15 & U13 age groups can try Kent League Races first.

Race Walking specialised coaching takes place twice per month (see wesbite), is fun and concentrates on technique, drills, etc rather than endurance training.

An indoor 70 metre track is available if weather requires it, for instance in winter.

There are special Race Walking sections on the website including news and coaching advice.

The inside two lanes of our eight lane track are reserved for Race Walking.
