 The Forest Of Dean Athletic Club presents: The Fountain Five. Thursday 24th May 2018. 7.00pm.  A challenging trail race in the beautiful Forest of Dean. 

 

 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.

The London Marathon Quiz Result!

So, after a couple of very kind donations this morning at parkrun, the total takings for the quiz were £627.30 a bit more than I said this morning as I found another box with money in when I got home. Yippee! There was the small matter of spending £175 on the food and drink but what the heck I may as well leave that in.

Oh, and on the subject of drink; you virtually drank the bar dry - of 64 bottles of alcohol at the start, there were 2 left at the end ! - Barbara, said she didn't think runners would drink much because of the calories and their health. Ha ha - little did she know.

Thank you all very much indeed for making it such a great night, what a fantastic crowd.
