MDRC Junior Running Club
The Junior members of MDRC meet every wednesday at the Grove - winter months we meet at the back car park and summer months we meet at the front.
Winter time we will mostly be training around the town under street lights and members must wear high viz clothing and bring head torches. This will include distance and speed training. We cover between 3 and 5 miles depending on age.
Summer months is concentrated on the field doing track work and drills. Off road training is done during the summer months too. Again distance is dependant on age.
There are opportunities to take part in relays at Shrugborough in June and depending on age Dearnford and Attingham Park.
Deborah Scotcher is our fully qualified Junior Coach and Barbra Slawson is our LIRF assistant coach and David Scotcher as assistant coach.
