About the club

Ampthill & Flitwick Flyers is a friendly running club based at Redborne School in Ampthill.

We cater for the absolute beginner to the elite distance runner, on road or cross-country and have a membership in excess of 200.

Whatever your reason for joining our Junior Sessions you will have plenty of support and advice from our friendly coaches.

  • Our OBJECTIVE is to provide fun, enjoyable training activities for runners of all abilities from ages 9 to 18.

During the Spring/Summer terms, our focus is on  track work , with lots of short and middle distance training;  we finish off the season with a friendly competition at Sandy Track  in July.

In Autumn and Winter we focus on off-road running and offer all students the opportunity to compete in the Chiltern Cross Country league as representatives of the club.

Autumn – Winter Cross Country Programme

Course information

Junior’s cross-country training is based in Ampthill Park, with sessions held Saturday mornings between September and mid-February.  These sessions are open to children between the ages of 9 and 18 (based on age 1st September 2014).  We’ve taken our experience in running summer and winter junior’s events to develop training that should never leave you bored.  We combine fun exercises and games with more traditional training techniques, plus we give all runners the opportunity to compete in local competitions

Training dates and times

Cross-country training commences officially on Saturday, 11th October, but we welcome new runners at any time.  Sessions will start at 9am: students are asked to arrive promptly at 8.50am to ensure adequate time for registration and session preparation.  We meet in the Ampthill Park, football club car park, off Woburn Street, then go together to our chosen training point within the park.  Sessions will continue (in almost all weather conditions!), until mid-February with a break over the Christmas holidays.
