THE BIG HALF
Please sponsor S-Factor Academy to take part in THE BIG HALF
The Big Half is a new one day festival centred around the half marathon distance, with over 20,000 participants taking part in a number of running events. Sir Mo Farah and Callum Hawkins, Britain’s top two distance runners, are confirmed to compete in the event.
S-FACTOR ACADEMY is an inclusive athletics club based in Lewisham, South East London.
We welcome athletes of 7 – 18+ years of all abilities ranging from our disability group to our gifted and talented athletes who compete at county and national level. Whether you simply wish to keep your child active and sociable, or your child is the next Olympic gold medallist, everyone is welcome.
We aim to encourage young people from London Communities to develop their life skills and full potential through athletics. Our ethos is to use sport as a tool to engage children and young people and channel their energy into building and enhancing their life skills. The skills our athletes can gain through athletics are wide ranging and the benefits apply to all areas of life. Athletes often develop discipline, focus, commitment, social skills, respect as well as a healthy attitude to setting goals and failure – all within a safe and fun environment!
The club is run entirely volunteers and being an academy we also offer wider developmental opportunities to our members such as career advice, mentoring and work experience. We incentivise academic achievement with our reward scheme and, depending on available funds, endeavour to support gifted athletes with potential to attend warm weather training every year for intensive training to help them ahead of the competition season.
PLEASE HELP TO SUSTAIN THE CLUB AND ENABLE US TO EXPAND OUR SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY BY SPONSORING OUR MEMBERS WHO ARE TAKING PART IN THE BIG HALF ON THE 4TH MARCH 2018.
