Hurdles training in Southend






Clearing a path for athletic success

Hurdles events involve the athlete navigating a series of evenly spaced hurdles while maintaining their speed and rhythm. Hurdles training at SS Athletics Southend therefore focuses on developing key skills, timing and technique, as well as raw speed and endurance.

SS Athletics Southend covers and trains for the 60mh, 100mh and 110mh.

Our expert coaches provide a comprehensive yet tailored training regimen that covers all aspects of hurdles. Athletes will learn proper hurdling technique, including the correct approach, take-off and landing over the hurdles, all while maintaining their momentum.

Honing your child's coordination

We place an emphasis on biomechanics, and work to improve an athlete's stride pattern, rhythm and coordination to ensure both safe and efficient hurdling.
