FOREST OF DEAN AC social runs 2017


In 2016, the Club applied to the Midcounties Co-operative for a grant.  We were pleased to be awarded £2000 which will be used to complete the throwing area and enable our juniors to improve their already considerable skills.  Committee members Stef Francis, Cherry Fowler, Alan Robertson and Chris Moore attended an awards event in the Coleford Co-op.

 Race Entry Reminder! When entering a race can you ensure you specify the club/team as Forest of Dean AC (rather than FODAC, Forest AC etc). This makes it a lot easier for us to compile results for the papers and website.


Are you looking at this website because you parkrun and want to get a bit quicker?  Or do you want to get fitter or to lose weight?  Whatever the reason, would you like to try athletics with us?

We always extend a very warm welcome to new people in our club. We have different sessions for younger athletes, for older juniors and for adults, and we welcome anyone, whatever their current ability.  At a recent Cross-country event, one of our runners heard the following: “You guys from FODAC are brilliant. Great support for everyone. Wish our Club was like that. ”  

If you want to know more, click on the “ABOUT US” tab for details on where we are based, how to join us or about our training sessions.

If you want to know about the races we stage, click on the “Open Races” tab, where the results of those races also appear.

Any other questions? Just click “Committee” above, and contact one of the people listed.

Hello all 😊

Tomorrow's social run from the New Inn Shortstanding car park will consist of two routes. Spike Powles will be taking the anti-social (but not too quick as he still has a dodgy foot 😂) on a route about 6.5 miles. I will be taking the giggle group on a slightly different route approximatley 5 miles long.

Off road, on a mix of terrain with a few good climbs so trail trainers are recommended.

Don't forget insect spray and money for the pub 👍🏻 see you tomorrow!

CWR this Saturday - I will be at club tomorrow with numbers. If you're not there I will try to give it to someone else on your leg. You will need pins on the day too.
If you can share transport to the end of your leg so much the better. Remember the CH bus picks you up from here to take you to the start of your leg.
When you arrive at the start of the leg you are asked to confirm your name with the organisers as per the team sheets.
The main CWR website details all start times & parking info.
Please wear Club Colours
Each leg has ONE water station only, so if it’s a hot day, prepare suitably, & its only cups of water
The routes are quite well marked, but not specifically marked for the race. You need to keep an eye out for the CWR marker discs (generally yellow if footpath or blue if bridleway) and sign posts. Towns and villages are often the hardest to navigate as the signs are often high up and in a different colour.
Rarely are car drivers pre-warned of the crossings with the usual signs, so take extra care. A few of the more difficult ones are:
Leg 1; Crossing at top of Fish Hill before Broadway Tower
Leg 3: A40 after Dowdswell, near the Koloshi
Leg 4; After Crickley Hill crossing A417 to Air Balloon
Leg 9; A couple of crossings over A46, sometimes marshalled.
