**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.

I am looking for a swimming/biking/running buddy for the winter.

I will suit male or female of ANY ABUILTY.

I am a....
58-54 min 10KM / 2-hour Half Marathon trail or road.
I road bike anything from 15km to 40km per ride around the forest
Swimming is pool or pond or sea

I am training for 2017 half & full Ironman HOWEVER....

I am looking for anyone who can train during the week during the day, even if it’s only a single discipline, I am interested.

I am especially keen to join anyone at the National Diving Center for swimming.

Due to the timing of the club I am unable to make the club nights, although I often go to my mother club Port Talbot Harriers as often as I can but as I am in Ruspidge it’s a long drive to run when we have such amazing runs around here.

So if you have time on your hands and would like to join me so we can push each other around the forest...... please please get in touch.

Ran Barnstaple Marathon today. The race was out and back on one side of the estuary and then out and back on the other running around (an exposed) Chivenor Airbase at the end of the third quarter. 1st quarter was in to a 12 mph headwind while the Met office gives wind speed today at Chivenor - at the end of the 3rd quarter - as 22mph with gusts of up to 29mph. I'm not really up to that distance anyway so as you can imagine, by the three quarter mark I was knackered. Last quarter was more of a shuffle than a run at times. Forgot to stop the watch until I had finished collapsing after the finish line but final time was around 3:50 which, I suppose will have to do under the circumstances. ... See MoreSee Less
