**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.

Hi all

With Saundersfoot Triathlon approaching on 17th September 2016, we are looking for volunteers. This, our first triathlon in the beautiful Saundersfoot, is perfect for beginners and experienced athletes alike.

For every 10 members your club gets together, we will donate £200 to your club or a charity of your choice.

If you have marshalled before, firstly I’d like to personally thank you for all your help in the past! I’m sure you’ll know what is involved in helping out with these fantastic events. If not, this is a great opportunity for some experience in the events industry; showcasing your ability to work as part of a team, work quickly and responsibly, and ensure the safety of athletes and spectators.

We are looking to end the season with a bang and we need you from 7:00am until 12:00pm, however there will be shorter time slots available.

If you are supporting an athlete taking part, this is a fantastic way to do so, offering a unique perspective of the race. If you are 16 years or older and interested, or know anybody who may be interested, please fill out the attached form and/or forward this email to those who may be interested. As a thank you for your efforts on the day, you will receive a free limited edition marshal T-shirt, and free entry to the end of season party on the evening of 17th September in Tenby’s rugby club and a free drink!

If you are unable to help with the Saundersfoot Triathlon but have already volunteered for an event this year, you are still eligible for free entry to the volunteers party, however you must RSVP as soon as possible.

If you would rather fill out the form online, you can set up a volunteer account here.

I look forward to seeing you all on the day, in a hi-vis or otherwise, it would be great to have your support!

Kind Regards,

Tyler Woods
