Lincolnshire XC Squad Training

Squad Manager Bill Taylor has announced two dates before Christmas.

10:00 – 11:45, Saturday 8th December at Woodland Waters Holiday Park, Willoughby Road, Ancaster, Lincolnshire, NG32 3RT (map).

The session this Saturday will be mainly on the flat, with a mix of long (up to about a 1400m) and short reps, for younger groups with some relays/parlauf to finish. The seniors/U20 session will focused on tempo paced reps around the lake.

There is an onsite restaurant/bar that will be open from 09:00 for hot drinks and snacks, from which parents can observe the session. Dogs are allowed on leads. Information about the venue (a location map is under the contact tab) can be viewed at

Please park adjacent to Woody’s Restaurant and Bar. As it is a private park there may be a charge of £2 per car which they sometimes collect (though not the last two visits!).

10:00 – 11:45, Monday 24th December at Belmont Tower, Belton Park, Grantham, NG32 2LS (map)

The session on Christmas eve is a strength session and will be a mix of tempo runs, long and short hill efforts. It will be suitable for all ages and guaranteed to give you an appetite! Final details will be sent nearer the time.

The training surfaces are suitable for spikes/studs on both days. You should come changed for both sessions with additional clothing in case the weather is poor.

As always coaches and/or parents are welcome to attend the sessions. This includes participating as runners and/or assisting with direction on the day (Depending on numbers I may need a hand!)

Athletes are asked to inform Bill if they are planning on attending the Ancaster session to assist in planning. Bill can be contacted on 07768 953338 or
