Running for Gold
Published Thursday 25th October 12
Mini-runners will be provided with a real athletic experience during the October half term with a sports camp for children and young people aged five to sixteen.
This year's Olympic track and field athletes have inspired a generation of sporting youngsters to get more involved in athletics.
Whether in awe of five and ten thousand metres champion Mo Farah or long jump Champion Greg Rutherford, or wanting to be more like 400 metres silver medallist Christine Ohuruogu or heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis, the sessions provide a real opportunity for young people to develop and improve their athletics skills.
Depending on their age, participants may choose to attend for the whole week, a day or just the morning.
Sessions take place between Monday, 29 October 2012 and Friday, 2 November 2012 from 10am until 3pm.
Sessions costs £4 for each morning session (10am to 12pm) and £8 for a full day session (10am to 3pm).
Any participants paying for five days get one day free.
Young people attending all day will need a packed lunch. Participants should also wear suitable clothes for outdoor sport.
Free goodie bags will be given to all who attend
Sessions will take place at Herringthorpe Stadium, Middle Lane South, Rotherham,S65 2HR. All coaching staff are Criminal Records Bureau-checked and fully qualified.
