Juniors Section



The clubs stand on Juniors turning up to Train with the Seniors.

Over the past few years a number of discussions and situations have arisen regarding Juniors (those aged under 18 - UKA rules) attending Senior Club sessions.

We are affiliated to UK Athletics who set out a number of rules for this, some are a guide for those clubs to work within, allowing them a certain amount of flexibility but maintaining no breach of rules and any public liability or duty of care issues.

So to clarify from UK Athletics perspective and what we at dereham Runners AC abide by...

  • Affiliated clubs who have a junior group run by qualified coaches, advise that all those under the age of 18 run with the junior group, however the flexibility here is that a club can allow those at 16yrs+ to join the senior sessions as long as the following 3 points are met.
  1. They are club members.
  2. They have parents consent.
  3. The session location is of low-risk, i.e. not on public roads, pathways acceptable)

Under no circumstances can Under 12’s train with Seniors.

Please do remember that this is only on the club official training nights.
