Qualified Coaches and Leaders at Spirit of Monmouth

To help our members stay safe while running and develop their running ability, some members have gained qualifications in coaching and leading runners. More information about the qualifications can be found at the Welsh Athletics website:

Leadership in Running Fitness

Coach in Running Fitness

The club has a certain amount of budget to send members on these courses, to ensure there are plenty of people trained to lead groups of runners. If you are interested in gaining one of these qualifications (please note you generally have to obtain the Leader qualification as a prerequisite to the Coaching qualification), please speak to a Committee member.
