Ladies Development Squad

Ladies Development Squad

Are you a female runner who is looking for a fun training group to push you a bit further? You are at the right spot!

Our Ladies at the National Cross Country Championships 2020
So much mud, so much fun!

The Ladies Development Squad (aka ‘the Racing Panthers‘) meet twice a month, working with a coach to improve your racing speed, form and strategy. Our aim is to make you a better, faster and smarter runner, while keeping it fun.

The Racing Panthers provide a social and supportive training environment. Our training is organized into training blocks (8-12 weeks long) targeting specific races throughout the year, from 1 mile to half marathon. These races are chosen to give the group’s training a structure and to offer you a variety of training focuses, but you are not expected to run these races. This group is about developing female runners.

What is your running like now?

The Ladies Development Squad is targeted at female runners who are aspiring to, or can already, run

Any questions, please absolutely contact us at or via our Facebook group.
