**Buffs! FODAC Buffs have arrived. Now available at the hut @£6 each ** 

 Reminder from Jacqui! 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.

Fell Running Navigation Skills

Following Dan's message regarding Fell Races, a few of you have asked about understanding and learning how to navigate using a map. I have been doing some research and the Ordance Survey website has a series of videos by Steve Backshall that take you through the basics of map reading.

It covers:

Which OS map you need
Understanding map symbols
Making sense of contour lines
How to read a grid reference (both four-figure and six-figure versions)
Knowing your compass and how to take a compass bearing
What is magnetic north?

Here's the link:


There is also a map reading leaflet you can download:

2017 Fell Race Series - Any interest?
Hi, A few keen Forest Fell runners are considering starting a FODAC fell race series, to run alongside the club championships and the XC league. The idea would be to encourage club participation in local fell races and enjoy the mountains.. There would be a variety of races, but in general would stick to races with little / no navigation needed..
So, is this something people want, or is it a championship too far?
