 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.

Entry for the Christmas Tree race up for grabs.

I’ve decided not to run it mainly because my winter off from cycling ended up being 5 weeks off and now I’m engage in a winter cycling training program so haven’t ran much at all.

Secondly because I don’t finish work until 7am that morning..... it seemed like a good idea when I entered!

** hopefully I’m allowed to offer this place out, and I’m not breaking any rules in doing so **

Under 11 training is cancelled. School gym is closed. The track is dangerous and not useable. Running on it and packing the snow and ice down will mean it takes longer to thaw.
