Training from Friday 7 August

Following the change in guidelines issued by England Athletics on 4 August, Stantonbury Athletics Stadium will be open for all MMK athletes, and potential members on a two-week trial. Long Jump, Triple Jump, Hurdles and Steeplechase training is now possible. We hope to resume High Jump and Pole Vault training shortly. We are looking to reopen the weights room when the rules have been agreed. Revised rules for the use of the Stadium have been agreed by the club committee, and athletes will be asked to sign a waiver form before they are allowed to enter.

MMK athletes and potential new members who wish to use the track should  read the rules and then download the waiver. Please add your name and the date to the waiver form and email it to your lead contact indicating that you agree to the terms. For athletes aged Under 18, the waiver form must be returned by your parent/guardian.

Mick Lee's U11s Tiger Group will train in three one-hour time slots between 3pm and 6pm on Mondays. Contact Mick Lee to pre-book a place on one of these sessions. David Millet's Athletics 365 Sessions will train in two one-hour slots between 6pm and 8pm on Mondays. Contact David Millett to pre-book a place on one of these sessions. Please note that you must pre-book sessions. Athletes who just turn up at the track will not be allowed to train.
