Ian Stewart, Head of Endurance at UKA said:

“This is a crucial partnership between UKA and England Athletics to deliver a much needed programme of training days. From my experiences as an athlete, I know the value of working together and this is an exciting venture for endurance running in the UK, it will only be successful with the full support of athletes and coaches.”

UKA & England Athletics will coordinate invitations in a number of ways:

UKA will directly invite all World Class Programme athletes and their coaches.

Athletes who have competed in a GB & NI team over the past twelve months, along with their coach, should contact National

UKA and England Athletics look forward to welcoming all athletes and coaches to these training days.
