**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.

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?

I'm afraid the race sold out very quickly with an unprecedented demand for places. Last year it sold out in around 48 hours. This year, overnight. Apologies of your members did not manage to get a place but this seems to be the situation with many races these days.

Reply from Lliswerry organisers. Sorry to those who wanted to enter the first club champs race, nobody expected it to sell out so quickly. I didn't get in myself and had aimed to do every race! At least it's got people talking about the championships!

Hi guys

You’ll probably be aware that Tri Team Glos host a sprint triathlon annually in late May (28th this year) comprising a 400m swim, 28km bike ride and 6km run. We’re keen to attract more people to the sport but think that the distances might put some novices off so this year we are planning on introducing a super sprint event with a 200m swim, 14km bike and 3km run. Depending on interest we are also proposing to provide some triathlon specific training for novices to help people de-mystify running off the bike, what to wear, how to get through transition etc. Entry for the sprint will be the same as in previous years - just £38 whilst the super sprint will be £25. We also have a relay option where the prices will be £15 and £10 per competitor for the sprint and super sprint respectively.

We are also aware that it helps the nerves if people can compete with friends so this year we are offering a discount if local clubs can muster a minimum of of 5 members and will operate a buy 5 entries get one free scheme!

Would you mind promoting our race with your members and feed back whether the try a tri would be of interest?

Many thanks

Pete Jones

Senior records are now up to date. I'm now working on the juniors.
Let me know if I missed anything or you see any mistakes.
I must admit they do need tidying up as so many new categories have been added and they are a bit out of order.
I'll tackle that after doing the juniors

Eva Goodhead, Debby White and myself were at Bath University this morning, tackling another Relish Skyline race. The race was the usual off road, very steep, narrow and twisty through the wood, with an uphill that seemed to go on for ever. The big difference was the lack of mud for most of the course! Eva and Debby ran the 10k (though poor Debbie twisted her ankle twice, so pulled out after 5k), while I was very pleased to complete the 5k - my first race since August and my enforced 'rest', my first off road run since my operation. The slowest 5k I have ever done, but I am feeling very smug and pleased with myself. Slowly, very slowly, I am on my way back! ... See MoreSee Less
