The morning will begin with a warmup and drills, some of which will be event specific, before moving on to work over hurdles and then barriers and will conclude with water jumps. Usual Bristol & West Athletic Club track fees will apply which is £2 for club members  and £3 for non-club members. If you are thinking of attending (or coaches who plan to bring athletes along) please let Keith Brackstone (coachkeith53@gmail.com) know in advance so that he and Robbie have an idea of the sort of numbers they can expect to attend. Athletes are advised to bring spikes if they wish to give the water jump a try.
