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.

7 hardy foresters took on the Mynydd Llangorse/Grim Reaper Fell Race, based at the Llangorse Rope centre. Murky looking clouds were covering the mountains travelling to the race, but luckily this had lifted, making excellent running conditions, in time for the race. The 3 mile race started with a slog up through some muddy fields, then flattened out for a while, traversing the side of the hill, before cutting back right, and steeply ascending to the trig point. From the trig, it was all downhill, as fast as you dared, down another muddy path, through a stream and back to the start/finish field for a final sprint across the line. Special mention to Debbie Stenner - 2nd lady, Ian Smith - 1st M50, Dan Sandford - 1st M40 and Helen Brown (running for Mynydd Du) was 1st Lady! Great running all! ... See MoreSee Less
