Due to the current circumstances we are not opening any future bookings currently. We are closely monitoring the situation and speaking regularly to the schools. School bookings already made for the summer term will be refunded if we are unable to deliver the paid course.
What We Offer
We are passionate about helping both children and adults improve their fitness and develop a wide range of athletic skills. Our training incorporates aspects of the British Athletics 365 model for athletes. We specialise in delivering a range of activities: after school clubs, breakfast clubs, core and conditioning, weekend sessions and holiday clubs. We have just taken 27 athletes on a very successful weekend training camp, involving running training, mobility and balance workshops and yoga. All we ever ask of our athletes is that they listen, work hard and, most importantly, have fun.

My 12 year old son has just completed his first Kudos running course on Saturday mornings. He thought it was a really friendly environment, the coaches knew what they were doing and converted their experience into enthusiasm and really interesting coaching sessions. He can tell his fitness has improved and it has boosted his confidence to continue with running. He thinks Kudos Athletics is brilliant!

I just wanted to let you know how much my two children have really enjoyed your athletics club at school. They are both keen to join again in the new school year. They are totally exhausted by the end of your sessions (!!) but still enjoy going back each week. A good combination I feel!

My name is Nick Hughes, and I'm a British Athletics qualified coach. Though I can teach various track and field events, I particularly specialise in endurance running. I have been a coach at Chiltern Harriers for the past 6 years, and in that time I have coached several hundred young athletes. Currently, I am responsible for over 50 athletes ranging from year 3 to year 10. Within the group we have a number of extremely talented athletes.
In June I raced in the European Triathlon Championships in Holland representing GB where I came 14th. In September I won my ETU qualifying race in Brighton, and will represent GB in Estonia in June 2020, at the European Triathlon Championships. You can follow me on Strava if you want to get some new ideas for adult running. Get in touch for more information.
I have always enjoyed sport, especially running and swimming, and have spent a lot of time both training and competing. I ran competitively as a teenager and enjoyed success at cross country and track events at both county and national level. I am still very involved in sport, and swim with the Masters at Amersham Swimming Club and also run for Chiltern Harriers. I regularly compete in events ranging from cross country races to half marathons and I recently competed in the 2019 London Marathon, achieving a Good for Age qualifying time.
I thoroughly enjoy coaching and have been coaching with Nick at Chiltern Harriers for the past year. I help coach a number of talented junior athletes. It is incredibly rewarding to see how much enjoyment they get from training and competing, and to see their self-esteem grow as they see themselves improve, and above all, the camaraderie and sense of team spirit that they build along the way.
Over the past 2 years, the Kudos Athletics coaches have been responsible for coaching a number of individuals and teams at national level. Their achievements include:
First place, both individually and team, at the National Schools Cross Country FinalFirst individual place at the National Schools Cross Country Year 7Second team place at the National Cross Country ChampionshipFirst place in both the male and female Cross Country County Championships under-13sLondon Junior Triathlon Champions 2018 and 2019National Road Relay Champions, under-13 female and male 2019South of England Cross Country Individual and Team Winners for the under 13 male and female at Parliament Hill January 2020Under-13 boys team first place, February 2020, Nottingham
Benefits of physical activity
Evidence demonstrates that frequent physical activity, such as running, can substantially improve the physical fitness and health of children and young people. In particular, there is strong evidence that physical activity will lead to stronger heart and lungs, improved muscular fitness, stronger bones and more favourable levels of body fat. There is also some evidence that physical activity can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression and improve academic achievement.

Children learn their range of motion, balance, muscle strength, coordination, and endurance. The role of active play has been established not just as a part of learning, but as the basis for overall healthy social and emotional development.
