Calder High School column: Coaches give a helping hand to fell runners

editorial image

Year 7 and Year 8 students have had the opportunity to participate in fell running this term.

We have developed our links with Calder Valley Fell runners club by inviting two outstanding coaches, Alastair Whitelaw and Mark Goldie to lead sessions during PE lessons on Mondays.

Last September we hosted the English Schools national championships and we have been asked to host this again on September 27, 2016.

Over 100 students have participated so far and we hope this coaching produces a future English champion.
