Informal Meet-ups and Training Lincs XC Groups – Two dates before Xmas

Dear Athletes

Please see below the details of two informal meet ups and group training sessions before Christmas;


  • Saturday 14th December at Woodland Waters Holiday Park, Willoughby Road, Ancaster, Lincolnshire NG32 3RT
  • Tuesday 24th December at Belmont Tower, Belton Park, Grantham, NG32 2LS


For both sessions please meet at 9.45am ready to start at 10.00am. We will be finished by about 11.45am.


The session next 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. Seniors/U20 session will focused on tempo paced 6-8 x1400m reps around the large lake.


There is an onsite restaurant/bar that will be open from 9.00am 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 Woodies 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!).


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 send out 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!)


Can senior and U20 male and female athletes please let me know whether or not you’re coming to Ancaster as that assists in planning the mix of groups for the session.


Please put the word around as the mailing list is a bit out of date – especially regarding Lincs athletes away at University who may be around at Christmas.


(After the County XC Championships in January future meet ups/training sessions will be posted on the Lincolnshire Athletics Facebook page, rather than bothering people with emails)


Should you have any queries please free to call me on 07768 953338


All the best Bill
