Our spring open meeting is on 20 April and it would be great to see lots of our members taking part, please enter ASAP!

Bath Half – 17 March 2019

Well done Carl Ryde running a new V40 DAC club record, finishing 1st V40 and in 18th place overall with a time of 1:11:18.

“I was dropped to 3rd at 6 miles and 100m down. At 8 miles I’d got into 2nd and then made most of tailwind to get on terms and push on. Caught 2nd last mile and then ran as hard as I could to make sure I’d bagged the V40 running prize. Windy day but will take it today. Off for my gold medal and some Guinness.”
