Becoming a leader

If you would like to get involved in leading, the first formal step is completing the England Athletics Leadership in Running Fitness qualification (LiRF). Please speak to Gemma Finnie, or any member of the committee if you would like to embark on this process. As part of this process a DBS check is carried out. More information on the qualification can be found below.
