Course Description

The course will involve pupils undertaking different methods of running training to enable them to increase their running capacity.  Each week, we will run a different offsite route (for example, in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle).  Pupils who choose this course should already have a reasonable level of fitness and be prepared to run continuously each week.  They will also learn about nutrition and the effects of exercise on the body.  It should prove to be a very rewarding and enjoyable course.
