â€śThe legacy of the 2012 Olympics is not just for young peopleâ€ť says Andy Paul, Chair of Birchfield Harriers. The Birmingham based athletics Club, which is putting on special programmes for youngsters who are keen to take up the sport, is also keen to encourage adults to get involved.
The Club offers a wide range of opportunities for adults who wish to start running of even competing. The road running section of the club offers training and advice on how to start running in a social fun environment catering for all levels from beginners to those who currently run but would like to take it more seriously. In addition for those who used to compete there are opportunities to take up the sport once more in a competitive environment both in track and field and road running.
â€śYou are never too old to become part of the sport and we would also like to build on the volunteering success of the Games by encouraging more people to get involved as officials, coaches or helping our in other capacities. Our Club is run by volunteers and we welcome anyone who has a passion for athletics and would like to help us produce the Olympians of the future,â€ť concluded Paul.
