Free athletics training course

Have your say

Free sports coaching for adults is being launched at Sheffield’s English Institute of Sport.

The Back to Athletics sessions have been organised to meet demand following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Funded by South Yorkshire’s Sportivate Programme, the weekly classes for anyone aged over 14 will provide people with the chance to try running, long jump, high jump, hurdles, pole vault and javelin.

A taster session takes place on Wednesday, October 24, from 8pm.

The free programme will launch officially on November 7, and run every Wednesday.

To book places, email or visit or call 0114 223 5600.
