What Are Athletics Networks?

Athletics Networks are clusters of athletics clubs and running clubs working strategically with other local key partners to develop the sport of athletics in their local area.

Athletics Networks will seek to drive up the quality of coaching, links with community groups such as schools, competition in clubs and also seek to develop the all round quality of provision within clubs in the network.
