Development Days

The South London Athletics Network (SLAN) held its second Hurdles Development Day at Sutton Arena on the 7th November. Under the excellent tutorship of Judy Vernon, Marina Armstrong, and Lorna Boothe, the coach development day had 9 coaches attend along with 18 athletes. The initiative helps develop coaches over the short and long hurdles events.

The coaches also had the added benefit of meeting Andy Turner European and Commonwealth 110meters Champion. He took the coaches and athletes through some of his key training drills and showed off his medals from his successful Summer campaign of racing.

The SLAN Hurdles Development Days will be taking place throughout the Winter at Sutton Arena on the first Sunday of every month from 9-45am to 12-30pm. If any coaches or athletes are interested in attending the next event on Sunday December 5th please contact Lorna Boothe at  There will also be development days on February 6th and March 6th.
