Racing Starts

Learning to start your race properly is clearly of primary importance to sprinters, where giving away a few tenths of a second to competitors could make all the difference.

However, it is also important to start well in longer races as well, ensuring that you get away from the start properly and settle in the correct position for you in the race.

There are starts here for all types of races. Please choose the one that interests you.
