British Athletics’ Event Group Lead for Sprints, Tony Hadley, said: “We’re very happy to be hosting this year’s European Speed Conference. We are delighted with the quality of the line up that blends the best of speed science with practical coaching experience. With such a high profile line up we expect this years event to sell out quickly so I encourage everyone to book as soon as possible. I look forward to welcoming you to The Belfry in November.”
