Go Jo…

Good luck to Jo Muir who is competing at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon. You can see how she gets on on Friday, 6th August with events starting at 6.30am GMT.

Jo is a former member of Stewartry Athletics Club, first competing in an 800m race in 2006 as an Under 13 Athlete.

The Modern Pentathlon requires Athletes to swim, fence and ride a horse to end up with a points score which gives them a time handicap for a final event where they must run a cross-country course while occasionally shooting at targets.

We wish Jo all the best.

Training During Summer Holidays

The club would like to confirm Training Sessions will be continuing during the School Summer Holidays, as long as coach availability allows.

There may be weeks when coaching staff numbers are reduced due to holiday breaks and a decision on whether training takes place that week will usually be made the week before the training session.

Please check this website weekly to view any updates.
