Kickstart Athletics Week 4: Golf Course Run

Thursday 28th Sep the Kickstart Athletics group will be running around the Stinchcombe Golf Course. This off-road run will build on the endurance running training.

We will be meeting in the walkers Car Park in the middle of the golf course at 6pm.

Winter running

Sadly we have now seen the last of the daylight for this year’s club running nights. So please could all runners now wear hi-visibility clothing (fluorescent and reflective where possible) and take head torches for evening runs, it is important to us that we keep all our runners safe and this is a practical measure that we can all support to help keep us safe on and alongside the roads of the local area. We have some reflective items that we can provide if needed and plenty of advice regarding what else works well e.g. good value head torches, so please contact us if we can help.

Safe running,

Caroline Jones – Safeguarding Lead

September’s Challenge Extended

September’s challenge – the Flying Mile is on until the end of September.

The trees are proving a bit of a challenge for satellite accuracy, so once you complete the segment I suggest you carefully cross the junction and go another 100m just to make sure it records you as having completed.

Good luck!

We are the champions!

On the 9th July the DRC Junior Section held a Track and Field Championship event. Entrants ranged from 7 years old to… well let’s just say adults. It was a beautiful day and participants took part in a variety of running, throwing and jumping events. A BBQ kept athletes and spectators alike well fed. There were many great performances and the award ceremony at the end of the day saw all juniors win at least one medal.
