**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.

Thursday’s runs
The Summer evening runs will start on April 28th.  Please see file below for details of this & future runs.

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.

The Swansea 10k is fast approaching. If you have put your name down for a seat(s) on the coaches, can I remind you that we need your £5 in advance to guarantee your seat. If you could please put your payment in an envelope with your name, the number of seats and which coach you would like on it. Please then post your envelope in the membership box in the hut.

The marked envelope is really important because my crystal ball has been a little faulty recently.

This Saturday is the biggest sports day ever, when 'I am GB' acknowledge the amazing efforts of our Olympians. Every one is being encouraged to take part in a sporting event on the 27th and parkrun is the main supporters of this occasion.
Please spread the word and share this post to encourage as many people as possible to join in.
I am staying on till 12 noon t give adults and young athletes to try a few different activities. Cake would be good to give things something of a party atmosphere if anyone can rustle something up. I'll bring biscuits. Anyone with any GB clothes or flags will help as well.
