72 Performances by DAC endurance athletes at the weekend, this will be well over 100 by the time we add the cross country results on.  From 5k to 50 miles well done all.  Any ommisions or errors let me know and always happy to receive your race reports.

Another awesome weekend of performances (cross country results to follow) and what an awesome support crew we had at every race.  No other local club offers training runs as well as us (all with qualified Leaders (LiRF’s) and Coaches (CiRF’s)) – come and try us for free for a few weeks (track fee applies but lots of other runs that don’t use our first class facilities).  If you want to run 6 minute miles or 13 minute miles we have training sessions for you.

This weeks runs can be found here.

How many ultra runners do you think we have at the club (since 2015) – we are compiling the records and its rather a lot, details to follow.
