Sprinting - Getting Involved

The best thing to begin with is to start training, develop your speed and technique and then try racing!

Getting Started

As with any sport the first thing to do is to start training to get in shape to compete. We can help you do that with our information pages and our Online Training facility. Or you drop down to the Weir Archer Athletics and Fitness Centre in Kingston on a Tuesday or Thursday evening and train with our sprints group.

To get into competitions the first step is often to try an "Open Meeting" where anyone can turn up and have a go at the event.

If you enjoy this the next thing to do is to join an athletics club in your area. There are hundreds of clubs throughout the UK of all levels (just check our directory for ones near you). They will be able to provide you with competition, further coaching and access to training partners, if you feel you'd like this.
